Variable Outline

Post by Dundoan » Fri May 27, 2011 1:09 pm

Is it possible to print a box around the outline of a variable. I have a variable which is variable in length and I would like to know if you can print the outline with the variable instead of drawing a box around the maximum length of the variable.

It can be done using VBScript. IObject interface exposes Width as read only member. Use it to get the width of the text on a label. Same interface also exposes methods Move and Resize which can be used to resize the rectangle object. You can use Name property to locate the correct objects on the label.

Hope this helps :wink:
