We can simply get text size when we know Font attributes - just use the QFont and QFontMetrics like in this article CS001349_-_Calculating_text_width_in_Qt

And here is contrary task: set Font Size to maximally fit into widget's size. Simple loop will help.

// Function gets aFont with initialized Font Family, and aText - which size is calculated
void TextWidget::calcFontSize(const QString aText, QFont& aFont)
{
// get widget's width
int wd_width = size().width();
// get widget's height
int wd_hgt = size().height();
int fontPointSize;
// calculating loop
for (int i = 0; i < 200; i++)
{
aFont.setPointSize(i);
// create FontMetrics for resized font
QFontMetrics fm(aFont);
// get text width for current font size
int x = fm.width(aText);
// get text height for current font size
int y = fm.height();
// check if text fits widget
if ((x > wd_width) || (y > wd_hgt))
{
// saving maximum possible size of font
fontPointSize = i-1;
break;
}
}
aFont.setPointSize(fontPointSize);
// as a result - we get already resized aFont
}
