You use the Class java.awt.FontMetrics class. One of its methods is:

stringWidth

public int stringWidth(String str)
 
 Returns the total advance width for showing the specified String  in this Font.  The advance width is the amount by which the current point is  moved from one character to the next in a line of text.  


Example:

FontMetrics fm("Arial");
int w = fm.stringWidth("This is a String");
