Feedback from Caption if text overflows box?

Post by johnfl68 » 2012-11-21T11:41:34-07:00

Hello:

Does anyone know if there is a way to get a result back when you use caption in perl, so that you can get a flag back if your text has overflowed the box?

For example get back a "1" if the text fit in the box, or a "0" if it did not.

I have a situation where I am dealing with a long piece of changing text being place in a large box. Most of the time all of the text will fit in the box. But, about 10% of the time the text is longer, and the bottom few lines get cut off.

If anyone knows, it would be appreciated.

Otherwise, I will just figure out the character count that fills the box, and if it is over that amount, reduce the font size.

Thanks!

John
