Default drawText HCENTER

Please Login to Remove!

I can't seem to get drawText to horizontally center text on my anchor point. It is always left-aligned.

g.drawText("Test", getWidth()/2, getHeight()/2, DrawStyle.HCENTER);

getWidth and getHeight are returning proper values, and the point is in the center of the display when halved. Any suggestions?

To answer my own question, it appears the API docs are flat-out wrong. It states that HCENTER centers text about the anchor point. Instead you have to specify the anchor as the left-most value of the box you want the text centered in, and provide the width of the drawing area:

g.drawText("Test", 0, getHeight()/2, DrawStyle.HCENTER, getWidth());
