centering a jit.lcd text ?

March 24, 2011 | 5:41 pm

hello,

I need to center a text dynamically feeding a jit.lcd on the Xaxis (width)
Sentences aren’t the same size.

At first, I tried to do that:
Xposition = (Width / 2. – (Number of characters * size of font) / 2. )

If the logic is ok, I have problems probably with space between letters + the value of "size of font"
Indeed, the fontsize is given in …?
I guess it isn’t event in pixel unit so

any ideas? advices?

best,
julien

did you study jitter recipes, Book 3, patch 28? (attached below)
It doesn’t use the jit.lcd as in your examples, instead it uses openGL and jit.gl.text2d… worth a look in any case!

hello,
I’m quite ok with jit.gl.text2d but I understood that it doesn’t offer unicode for windows.

how can I work with accentuation etc ?
I’ll subtitle in french + spanish so .. accentuation is a must.

I especially used jit.lcd because I believed it was impossible to use accentuation with jit.gl.text2d

can you help me with that?

jit.gl.text2d doesn’t seem to display my accentuation character BUT maybe it isn’t the unicode limitation…

in that post http://cycling74.com/forums/topic.php?id=31974 , I figured out I had problem with jit.lcd too :-/

any ideas/advices?

all the best,
julien
