Hi, 

how can I create a panel with many single labels and always the same distance between.

This should work without any changes on a normal pc-display or also on a 4k display. My problem is that I don't know how wide the single labels are.

I can't say that a letter has a definite wide, so there is a big difference between the following 3 letters:

 "iii" and "www" 

 So how can I do such a panel?

you could use a font such as courier

Google monospaced fonts for more

Latest version 970 has new terminal property TERMINAL_SCREEN_DPI

Check examples.

I would use constant size background rectangle label and inside put a normal label.

Here is a script to show you how it could work:

(If you want to make all of this moveable - search recent threads - i asked about it and got right responses.)
