Laying out text

I have a variable amount of fields (approx. 20) to layout in a table like format on screen. These form the legend of a chart.

The number of fields in the width and height depends on the size of the card which is variable as the users adjust the window size.

Is it possible in LC to work out the size (width) of the field required to hold the text without firstly creating the field or is it necessary to place all the fields on the screen, work out the formattedWidth and then layout the fields accordingly?
