You are going to run into a problem with your idea... WPF UIs use TrueType fonts. For example, on my screen 10 W's are about 4x as wide as 10 i's. You'd have to size your field to fit W's since that is the widest character (in English -- USUALLY), so you'd end up with a bunch of empty space for most other characters since they are much narrower. You could switch to a fixed width font, but then it wouldn't match the rest of the UI and you'd lose various functionality / behavior from TrueType fonts.

If you still want to go down that route, Petes code snippet will allow you to calculate the width you need, then you'll need to add in some padding depending on the control.
