I'm affraid you have to align text yourself. Each character is a certain width, you can get the size of the font with the command:


And with this command:

LEN(str$) can find out how many characters there is in your string that you want to print. Use this to calculate the total size of the string in pixels and position it right, centered or left aligned. Left and right-justified text (both margins straight) is a bit trickier and not realy worth the work in my view :-)

Let us know if you want more hints :-)
