I have been trying for some time now to find the APIs in Windows 10 that would provide me all the information about font metrics I would need when developing a Universal App in C#.
The real problem I'm trying to solve is to draw text along a path. I already have code in place to identify the coordinates of a given point given a given distance along the path. What I currently lack is the ability to identify the proper distance between characters.
I'd also like to know the typeface characteristics such as leading, trailing, ascent, descent, etc... I believe that TextFormatter is no longer available or possibly, I don't know how to access it.
Can anyone help me by providing either an example or preferably the correct Microsoft documentation for the class I would need.
