How to calculate real font size?

I have point (DBPoint) and I want to draw some text in this point by DrawOverrule.


It works fine:


Point3d textPosition = ....
wd.Geometry.Text(textPosition, point.Normal, Vector3d.XAxis, myText, true, TextStyle);


But how to draw text in two lines?


I can't use MText because it's overruled code (or no?).


So it's required to caclulate real font size and move second line to font vert-size.

Point3d textPosition = .... // first line
wd.Geometry.Text(textPosition, point.Normal, Vector3d.XAxis, myTextLine1, true, TextStyle);


textPosition = textPosition.Add(new Vector3d(???)); // second line
wd.Geometry.Text(textPosition, point.Normal,  Vector3d.XAxis, myTextLine1, true, TextStyle);


How to do it?

Hi Pavle,
I have not tested it but to use MText in overrule try something like this in WorldDraw(Drawable d,WorldDraw wd) method
Mtext _mText=new Mtext(do constructor here...);
