|string||The string to measure the width of.|
This function will return the width (in pixels) of the input
string. It is very handy for calculating distances between text
elements based on the total width of the letters that make up the
string as it would be drawn with draw_text
using the currently defined font.
ww = string_width(str_Name + " ");
draw_text(32, 32, str_Name));
draw_text(32 + ww, 32, "has won the game!");
The above code will get the width of the given string and then draw two lines of text, using the returned string width as a separator.
