XPLMMeasureString

XPLM_API float                XPLMMeasureString(
                                   XPLMFontID           inFontID,    
                                   const char *         inChar,    
                                   int                  inNumChars);    
This routine returns the width in pixels of a string using a given font. The string is passed as a pointer plus length (and does not need to be null terminated); this is used to allow for measuring substrings. The return value is floating point; it is possible that future font drawing may allow for fractional pixels.
