Gets the preferred height of the control.
Assembly: System.Windows.Forms (in System.Windows.Forms.dll)
This property returns the height that the control should be in order to properly display text, based on the font assigned to the control. You can use this property along with the PreferredWidth property to ensure that the text in the Label control is displayed properly. You can use the AutoSize property to automatically adjust the height and the width of the Label control, based on the text and font size.
The following code example demonstrates how to create a Label control that has a three-dimensional border and an image displayed using the ImageList and ImageIndex properties. The control also has a caption with a mnemonic character specified. The example code uses the and PreferredWidth properties to properly size the Label control on the form on which it is displayed. This example requires that an ImageList has been created and named imageList1 and that it has loaded two images. The example also requires that the code is within a form that has the System.Drawing namespace added to its code.
