Member variable XbpCrt():fontWidth Foundation

Sets the width of the font used to display characters in the text mode.

Attribute: EXPORTED
Data type: Numeric (8)
Description

:fontWidth sets the width of characters output in text mode (such as output by QOut() or @... SAY). The default value is 8.

The font width multiplied by the number of columns :maxCol+1determines the width of the XbpCrt window on the screen. The calculation is :fontWidth * (:maxCol+1) == height. The translation of text mode column coordinates to graphic x coordinates is done using :fontWidth.

:fontWidth is used to select a font with the corresponding character width. This is achieved by the methods :create() and :configure(). To change the font used by an XbpCrt object that is already created, the methods :setFont() and :setFontCompoundName() can be used. If the corresponding font is not available, the font that provides the "best fit" gets installed. The value in :fontWidth corresponds to the character width of the font actually installed. See also :fontName and :fontHeight.
