Data Driven Width O' Sizer

Useful software that I've written in Visual Basic.



// //

When designing software, it is often necessary to display data. The data, of course, may be of a variety of lengths (e.g., Utah contains 4 characters while West Virginia contains 13 characters). Because the length of data varies, it is difficult to determine beforehand the appropriate width of the control that will display the data. This issue is further compounded if the data is to be displayed in a variable width font. With these issues in mind, Data Driven Width O' Sizer was created. Essentially, Data Driven Width O' Sizer reads data from a text file and determines the width that a control would have to be in order to display the data in a specific font.
