OpenPeripheralAddons version : 0.3.1

Hello world !

I work on HUD with OpenP. Addons and Terminal Glasses, it's quite similar to the Plastic Program made by 1lann, but I wanted to do it myself but I would summon your help because I'm stuck when i'm trying to center a text, the function worked perfectly with the previous version of Computercraft and OpenMods, but nowadays the sync() function disturbs me.

I know how to center a text :
math.ceil((BoxLengh/2) - (TextLengh/2))

The main box is 110px wide.
There is 10px between the border of the screen and the beginning of the main box.

Here an image to explain my problem :


I have this function to center the text :
function centerText(text, object)
	local MidText = text:len()/2
	local PosX = 65 - MidText

I know I have to multiply the 'MidText' by a number but I don't know which one.

I've also tried to use the same function as 1lann but it didn't works anymore with this version :

His code :

Modified, to match with mine (works with OpenP.Addons 0.2.0 snapshot):
((110/2 -10)-(Glasses.getStringWidth(text))*(0.65)/2))+20-0.5

According to this, the multiplier you're after should be 5 * textScale.
