I want to display a multiline text with certain font size. How to determine the font size in windows? How to convert it into point size?
I want to print next line very close to the first line ., means the gap should be minimum.
I have x, y co ordinates of the first string.

If we talking about pascal then you have to read about Graph Unit.....'Cause the answer is there....

{
-=GetTextSettings (procedure)     (Graph unit)=-
Gets settings for text output in graphics
mode.
Declaration:
procedure GetTextSettings(var TextInfo: TextSettingsType);
Target:
Real, Protected
Remarks:
Returns the current text font, direction,
size, and justification as set by SetTextStyle
and SetTextJustify.

 See Also:
 InitGraph
 SetTextJustify
 SetTextStyle
 TextHeight
 TextWidth

 Sample Code:
}
 {Gettxtst.PAS}

 {Sample code for the GetTextSettings procedure.}

 uses Graph;

 var
  Gd, Gm: Integer;
  OldStyle: TextSettingsType;
 begin
  Gd := Detect;
  InitGraph(Gd, Gm, ' ');
  if GraphResult <> grOk then
    Halt(1);
  GetTextSettings(OldStyle);
  OutTextXY(0, 0, 'Old text style');
  SetTextJustify(LeftText, CenterText);
  SetTextStyle(TriplexFont, VertDir, 4);
  OutTextXY(GetMaxX div 2, GetMaxY div 2, 'New Style');
  with OldStyle do
  begin                 { Restore old text style }
    SetTextJustify(Horiz, Vert);
    SetTextStyle(Font, Direction, CharSize);
  end;
  OutTextXY(0, TextHeight('H'), 'Old style again');
  Readln;

Just reference from turbo pascal 7.0's help :yawn:

I could not find a unit called Graph. And these methods are not part of Delphi 7.0. I think.

In Delphi the font height in included as a property of TFont.

H := -Font.Height;

And is related to the font size (points) and the ppi of your screen. Check Delphi Help's info on TFont.

Unless I missed something. This seems to be a basic concept. No offense.
