Hmm the only way I can see alignments having any influence on MeasureString would be if the boundingBox of the text is to be aligned to the layoutRect based on the alignment flags. Should just be able to then take the calculated bounding rect and align that to the layout based on the flags.
And you're right, if I use MeasureString I solve my issue where I don't know the height of the text ahead of time. Perfect.
