Keep in mind the term "rect" refers to a rectangular region. There is
no built-in way to do what you want. When you say "user entered" do
you mean after the text is entered, or dynamically as it is being
typed? You might be able to fit text to a shape using the
formattedRect property of text, but IIRC this will only work on text
already in a field (you can't get the formattedRect of text in a
variable for example). If you lock the screen and rewrap the text line-
by-line, you might get acceptable performance.
Hope this helps.
