        Draws a string centered by calculating its position depending on the size.

String s;
int width, height;
Graphics g;

FontMetrics fm = getFontMetrics(ftDefault);
Rectangle2D textsize = fm.getStringBounds(s, g);
int xPos = (width - textsize.getWidth()) / 2;
int yPos = (height - textsize.getHeight()) / 2 + fm.getAscent();

g.drawString(s, xPos, yPos);
