Notes

Remarks

The return value of the getComputedTextLength method enables Windows Internet Explorer to make reasonable assumptions about the glyph metrics for non-rendering processes.

The total text advance distance includes the advance values on the glyphs (horizontal or vertical), kerning effects, letter-spacing effects, word-spacing effects, and adjustments because of the dx and dy attributes on SVGTSpanElement elements.

Syntax

float retVal = object.getComputedTextLength();
