Hello,

I am using Ext.util.TextMetrics to calculate the exact pixel width/height of some text in a TextArea. This works fine for the default CSS. But it does not give the right values when I use my own CSS overrides.

Does anyone else experience this?

What happens is the text is actually rendered off screen to be calculated so if you have the text wrapped in a <div> or something to apply custom styling, you will need to pass that with the text.
