    Suggestion: "Fit in Space" option for font

    This is not a big deal or anything so I put it here. The idea is that, in your skin, you specifiy the font size and an optional attribute so that the text will be scaled back if it's too long for the defined space.

    This probably would be defined in the Tooltip portion just like the "Scroll" option.

    Sorry... first off scaling font heights is very unprecise.. thus I don't even do that when scaling the skins... second, all the checking and setting of text size would make everything incredibly slow. I don't think there's any decent way of doing this without creating a brand new control (like the scroll) which implies several limitations and performance reductions.

    I see. Thanks anyway. Like I said, it's no big deal.
