Hi I want to know the width of the text inside the CCTextFieldTTF but I can't find a way to do it, I want this width so I can move a CCLabelTTF in that position so it can be like a cursor for the CCTextFieldTTF

Thanks

So I came up with an idea that really works

In CCTextFieldTTF.h declare a new method

float getTextDimensions();

And in your .cpp

float CCTextFieldTTF::getTextDimensions()
{
    return CCLabelTTF::getContentSize().width;
}

And know just call your CCTextFieldTTF object

m_pTextField->getTextDimensions()

And do whatever you like with it
