No, Juha, you don't understand the issue at all.

Accessing Canvas outside Paint is OK under all widgetsets if done 
correctly. Whenever you access the canvas for text measuring you have to 
make sure you can do so. There are 2 solutions for it:

1.) Check HandleAllocated and skip the measurements if the handle is not 
allocated. Like here: 

- or -

2.) If you really have to do the measurements and return something, 
create an extra handle for the canvas like in TCustomLabel.CalculateSize.


The LCL's function is not to force creating the canvas when it cannot be 
naturally created with manipulating itself like you did.
