    Is there any way to get the width of the 'content' of text field?


      I am not referring to the container wdith (or character count) I am trying to get the approximate width of the content. I do not need the exact width but it would be great if I could get within 15% of the actual width in points or pixels.


      The only solution that I can think of is to measure every possible character width of a specific font, at a specific size, and then create a calculation to add up the total widths of all the characters. It would be a bit of a pain to do it this way but this would be just one more thing in a long list of crazy FileMaker workarounds that I have had to do.
