# Java Slick2D how to draw text with a centered alingment

I've made a button class that can be drawn and clicked on. How can I write the text of that button (using the slick drawing API, g.drawString()) with a Centered alingment (so that the text is exactly centered in a rect with defined x,y,widht and height). Thanks

If I understand this question correctly you want to create a class that writes text on a button for you centered to a rect.

public class DrawCentered(){
public DrawCentered(String chars, Rect r){
TrueTypeFont font = new TrueTypeFont(new Font(...));
int width = font.getWidth(chars);
int height = font.getHeight(chars);

g.drawString((r.x + r.width / 2) - (width / 2),
(r.y + r.height / 2) - (height / 2),
chars);
}
}


Note Above code is untested

I hope this helps, and if you have any further questions, don't hesitate to ask.
