How to know the number of characters we can place in a line ?

Suppose u make some pattern & it looks fine in your device (because width of pattern is less than width of device) But in other device, it might not get fitted (because it have little less characters capacity per line) So if there will be someway to identify the no. of characters we can put in a line for different devices, then it will easy to give instruction for maintaining pattern. //ie, we can find maximum width we can have for pattern for a device. Some function available for that ?

You maybe finding the solution for java. I have a trick for it - not implemented though. Get the device width java.awt.toolkit.getDefaultToolkit().getScreenSize().getWidth() Measure the approximate length for a character - you may use a ruler ūüďŹūüėĀ Divide the width by approx. length of char and maximum length of a char sequence can be obtained. But this cannot be done practically in SL as it doesn't support java.awt, as we all know

‚Ź© Prometheus ‚Ź™ We can do error & trial for a particular device , but cannot do for all device. //the idea of this I get from Ace sir answer here (see 1st point) https://www.sololearn.com/Discuss/1652441/?ref=app

As far as I know, I don't think anything except for web supports that. And it seems the only method now is trial and error, unless you know both the screen size and the size of characters

You can get the width of console window with Python and adjust your code for it. Don't be too optimistic thinking you could do this HERE as well: You'll get the values from the compiler PC. ;-)
