Text.getLocalBounds() returns strange coordinates
« on: June 03, 2023, 09:02:03 pm »
I have a Text object. I have the string, the font and the size set. When I call getLocalBounds() on this object it returns a rect with the following values:
left = 0.0, top = 5.0, width = 48.8 and height = 6.0

I expected both left and top to be 0.0.
Why is the top not 0?
Thanks

Basically because taller characters can extend outside the bounding box. There's more info in this topic (and the topic it links): https://en.sfml-dev.org/forums/index.php?topic=27711.msg174750#msg174750
