+----------------------------------+   bounds

The bounds are provided as an argument to the IScreenLabel.RenderScreenLabel method. Based on the given bounds, the label layout is computed as follows:

  1. The measured text box is aligned with the computed bounds using the current ScreenLabelTextStyle.TextAnchor.

  2. The justification (left, center, right) of each text line is determined by the horizontal ScreenLabelTextStyle.TextAnchor flag.

The measured text box and the computed bounds may have different sizes. To ensure that both boxes have the same size, the size returned by IScreenLabel.PrepareScreenLabel must be passed to as the bounds parameter to the ScreenLabelPlacement.Add method.
