BestSizeEstimator.GetFontToFitBounds(String, BrickStyle, RectangleF, ReportUnit) Method

Gets the font with which the specified text fits the specified boundaries.

Namespace: DevExpress.XtraReports.UI

Assembly: DevExpress.XtraReports.v19.1.dll

Declaration

public static Font GetFontToFitBounds(
    string text,
    BrickStyle style,
    RectangleF bounds,
    ReportUnit reportUnit
)
Public Shared Function GetFontToFitBounds(
    text As String,
    style As BrickStyle,
    bounds As RectangleF,
    reportUnit As ReportUnit
) As Font

Parameters

Name Type Description
text String

A string that specifies the text used in calculations.

style BrickStyle

A BrickStyle object that specifies a drawing style.

bounds RectangleF

A RectangleF structure specifying the initial boundaries which the text should fit.

reportUnit ReportUnit

A ReportUnit enumeration value that specifies the system of measurement.

Returns

Type Description
Font

The Font object that specifies an optimal font.

Remarks

The GetFontToFitBounds method allows you to calculate an optimal font for the specified text to occupy the entire specified area.

The code snippet below demonstrates how to use this method to draw a LabelBrick with maximum possible text size.

using DevExpress.XtraReports.UI;

// Prepare for creating a document.
printingSystem.Begin();
BrickGraphics gr = printingSystem.Graph;
gr.Modifier = BrickModifier.Detail;

// Create a new brick instance and specify its settings.
LabelBrick brick = new LabelBrick();
brick.Text = "Some text";
brick.Rect = new RectangleF(0, 0, 200, 100);
Font font = BestSizeEstimator.GetFontToFitBounds(brick.Text, brick.Style, brick.Rect, ReportUnit.Pixels);
brick.Style.Font = font;
gr.DrawBrick(brick);

// Finish creating the document.
printingSystem.End();

To perform the opposite operation (that is get the boundaries to fit the specified text), call the BestSizeEstimator.GetBoundsToFitText method.
