How do I dimension an angled line?

I've been learning onshape while designing a gazebo. I've drawn a joist and an now trying to make a drawing of its critical dimensions.

In the image below the length of the joist is measured between the angled ends. Is there a way to get the dimension as one would measure it with a measuring tape across the top of the joist? I'm referring to the 99.227" dimension. It should be angled to measure the length of the lumber.
