Console.BufferHeight Property

Gets or sets the height of the buffer area.

Namespace: System
Assembly: mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)

public static int BufferHeight { get; set; }
/** @property */
public static int get_BufferHeight ()

/** @property */
public static void set_BufferHeight (int value)

public static function get BufferHeight () : int

public static function set BufferHeight (value : int)

Not applicable.

Property Value

The current height, in rows, of the buffer area.

Exception typeCondition

ArgumentOutOfRangeException

The value in a set operation is less than or equal to zero.

-or-

The value in a set operation is greater than or equal to Int16.MaxValue.

-or-

The value in a set operation is less than WindowTop + WindowHeight.

SecurityException

The user does not have permission to perform this action.

IOException

An I/O error occurred.

This property defines the number of rows (or lines) stored in the buffer that is accessed by a console mode window. In contrast, the WindowHeight property defines the number of rows that are actually displayed in the console window at any particular time. If the number of rows actually written to the buffer exceeds the number of rows defined by the WindowHeight property, the window can be scrolled vertically so that it displays a contiguous number of rows that are equal to the WindowHeight property and are located anywhere in the buffer.

This example demonstrates the BufferHeight and BufferWidth properties. The example reports the dimensions of an operating system window set to a buffer size of 300 rows and 85 columns.
