Hi Yousfi.

I've put your code into a loop to extract the required object widths for various font sizes and character strings for the Courier New font.

The derivation below follows from the results:

COURIER NEW analysis:

Let the number of characters = x. Then:

Font_Size	Object Width
     7          ((x-1)*5)+10
     8          ((x-1)*7)+14
     9                "
    10          ((x-1)*8)+16
    11          ((x-1)*9)+18
    12         ((x-1)*10)+20
    13                "
    14         ((x-1)*11)+22
.........      .............
.........      .............

Thanks for all your help.

Regards,

Russell.
