Since the question is answered. It better to remove this question. It's also zero points so you can do it safely.

To provide a reader of this question with an answer:
use an label control with the autosize property set to true
label1.text = "Hello"
text1.text = label1.text
text1.width = label1.width

Use the TextWidth property of a Form to determine the width in pixels of some text for the Form's current font. For example:

Text1.Width = Form1.TextWidth("Blah")

Unless you're using Courier or some other fixed width font, you'll need to take into consideration the different widths for different strings even though they might be the same number of characters in length. If say the field's length is 5, I'd probably recommend finding the width of say 5 "W" or "M" (ie wide) characters to set the width of your text boxes to ensure that all of the text is visible.
