Hi
Is there any way by which i can get the size
of a string in pixels? I mean depending on the
font size and style,i get the length of the string
in pixels.

Sounds like you are looking for the FontMetrics class in the java.awt package. Thats the class which can tell you such things as the display size of a string in pixels and the other data you need to exactly position text.
