Hi all! I want to create an NSTextField as big as the NSString that should be displayed in it. I tried the following code: NSString *myString = @"blabla blabla"; NSUInteger len =[myString length]; NSFont* mySystemFont = [NSFont systemFontOfSize:[NSFont systemFontSize]]; NSRect mySystemFontRect = [mySystemFont boundingRectForFont]; NSRect textFieldRect = NSMakeRect(0,0,len*mySystemFontRect.size.width,20); But the NSTextField that I created next using this textFieldRect, is far too big (width is too big) for my string! What I actually want to ensure is that, no matter what the font is, the NSTextField will display the entire string. Anyone has any idea what should I try next? Thanks!
