Can I get text width (pixels) from font?

I am writing an application in Intuition. I need to know the width of the text being printed in a TEXT_KIND to see if this is more than the width of the gadget (and then act upon this if so).

For example, given the text "Hello World", is there a way how to know the width that this text will have in pixels for a particular font used?

graphics.library/TextLength
intuition.library/IntuiTextLength

There are also

graphics.library/TextExtent
graphics.library/TextFit

The former tells you more details about the space your text neeeds and the latter tells you how many characters of your text fit into the area.
