I am trying to create some kind of text box gui element. It should render text into a square. Horizontally this works fine with the setTextWrapWidth function and the alignment values. But I have no clue how to determine the vertical space that the wraped text uses. Is there a way to get this value? Maybe it would be nice if the render Text function would return the occupied space used for the text.
Greetings, Simon

The line height currently is hardcoded as 1.1*fontSize.

In the latest SDK 4.1.7 there is a function getTextHeight(fontSize, text) which returns the height of the text using the current text wrap width.
