ABL Reference
Handle Attributes and Methods Reference : GET-TEXT-HEIGHT-PIXELS( ) method


(Graphical interfaces only)
Returns the height, in pixels, of the specified font. If no font is specified, the method returns the height of the default font.
Return type: INTEGER
Applies to: FONT-TABLE system handle


An integer expression that specifies an entry within the font table.
If you pass the Unknown value (?) to this method, the AVM uses the system default font. When a field-level widget inherits its font from the parent frame, the AVM returns the Unknown value (?) for the font and you must use the font of the parent frame.
