I have a couple of solutions for this right now, but neither are optimal: 1. GraphicsEnvironment.getLocalGraphicsEnvironment().getDefaultScreenDevice(),getDefaultConfiguration() .createCompatibleImage(1, 1).createGraphics().getFontMetrics(font).stringWidth(string) 2. new javafx.scene.text.Text().setFont(font).setText(string).prefWidth(-1) // Some poetic license here
