Member Function Documentation

int QFontMetrics::charWidth(const QString &text, int pos) const

Returns the width of the character at position pos in the string text.

The whole string is needed, as the glyph drawn may change depending on the context (the letter before and after the current one) for some languages (e.g. Arabic).

This function also takes non spacing marks and ligatures into account.
