no, what i am trying to do is get the width of a text layer (since thisLayer.width does not work as one would expect) and one work around we thought of here is to duplicate the text layer, create outlines and read the position of the left most and right most mask vertices using scripting, the problem is that we can't figure out how to create outlines using scripting.

text bounds

I'm not aware any ability to create outlines via scripting.
