I have a problem with the tm structure when invoking GetTextMetrics, the assembler always comes up with label not defined error. Is this not supported yet? or am I doing something wrong?

Make sure you included gdi32.inc, gdi32.lib, and the right windows.inc from the masm32 package. The function and structure are defined so if you include them correctly you shouldn't have any problems.

I've found the function in gdi32.inc & gdi32.lib:alright: I have includes for both of them, so that has at least narrowed it down to my code,
thanks Thomas

I'm still having trouble, where in MASM32 is the actual structure definition? I can't find it:mad:

TEXTMETRIC struct is defined in windows.inc (like all other structures)

Here is an excerpt:

tmHeight DWORD ?
tmAscent DWORD ?
tmDescent DWORD ?
tmInternalLeading DWORD ?
tmExternalLeading DWORD ?
tmAveCharWidth DWORD ?
tmMaxCharWidth DWORD ?
tmWeight DWORD ?
tmOverhang DWORD ?
tmDigitizedAspectX DWORD ?
tmDigitizedAspectY DWORD ?
tmFirstChar BYTE ?
tmLastChar BYTE ?
tmDefaultChar BYTE ?
tmBreakChar BYTE ?
tmItalic BYTE ?
tmUnderlined BYTE ?
tmStruckOut BYTE ?
tmPitchAndFamily BYTE ?
tmCharSet BYTE ?

Thanks Japheth, I'm still finding my way around all the documentation, must have a rest from coding and have a good read of everything.
