WHY?
what are you trying to do? I expect you to be doing something wrong, so please share some more info about why you want to determine the length of a text.

Solution 1

You are looking in wrong direction. By their nature, strings do not have lengths in in pixels or something like that. Strings are data structures totally abstracted from the way they are presented, such as fonts, colors, rendering styles, geometrical sizes, etc. Those are all some properties of some UI elements, whatever they are.

Solution 2

string sta = "Hi This is Word";
Font arialBold = new Font("Garamond", 11.5F);
Size st1 = TextRenderer.MeasureText(sta, arialBold);
float pixcel = st1.Width;
