Text Wrapping In RichTextBox Control

Hi All,
I've got a RichTextBox control that has some variable length & language text
in it that was retrieved from a resource file. When the text gets long
enough the control automatically warps it onto another line. I need to
determine how many total lines are being displayed including any wrapped
lines. This is not the same as the RichTextBox control's Lines.Length
property. How can I determine if the control has indeed needed to wrap the
text onto additional line(s)? I can't count char's because the font in use
has different widths for different chars. Is there some way to calcuate the
physical width of the text on a per char basis and compare that total to the
width of the control to figure this out. Or is there some other mechanism
that is better? Anyone have any code to show me?

TIA,
