I am trying to add my own functionality into DataDynamics ActiveReports.NET which will allow me to decimal align a column.
Here is an example of why it is important:
-You chose to make a negative number suronded by braces (i.e. ~ -$34.53 = ($34.53)), and you right align the column. So we have the column.
Financial people want this column aligned on the decimal point.
This I don't think would be to much of a problem if I had some way of determining the width of a character so that I would know how much to move each field by. Is there a way to get the width of a character in .NET? I would be whiling to use Managed C++ or any other suggestions people might have.
Thanks in Advance,
