Using the Field Length to determine the field width?

Post

     I currently use FileMaker Pro 12.0 V4. I am wanting to know if there is some way to determine the width of a field on a layout used for printing by determining the maximum length of a value used for that field?

     On the layout I use the Verdana 6pt font

     I have made 2 fields:

     Field Length = Length (Color)

     Largest Field Length = Maximum of Field Length

      

     I know I can't have it set it each time, but I could allow for the longest possible field value without it being clipped.

      

     Is it possible to determine how wide I need to make the Color field?

      

     Thanks,

     Carl
