Height Property

Visual Studio .NET 2003

Specifies the height of an object on the screen. Available at design time and run time.

Object.Height[ = nHeight]

Property Values

nHeight
Specifies the object's height measured in the unit of measurement specified by the ScaleMode property of the form.

Remarks

For forms, the Height measurement does not include the borders and title bar. Also, if the ScrollBars property is set to enable scroll bars, Height does not include space taken up by the scroll bar when it appears.

For controls, the height is measured from the outside of the control's border.

The value for this property changes as the object is sized by the user or by code.

Use the Height and Width properties for calculations based on an object's total area.

Note   The Height property is read-only when it applies to a control contained in a Column object.

Example

The following example demonstrates how the Height property is used specify the height of three command buttons on a form.

The AddObject method is used to add a Line control and three command buttons to a form. The Height property specifies the vertical height of each command button.

frmMyForm = CREATEOBJECT('form')  && Create a form
frmMyForm.Closable = .F.  && Disable the Control menu box 

frmMyForm.AddObject('shpLine','Line')  && Add a Line control to the form
frmMyForm.AddObject('cmdCmndBtn1','cmdMyCmndBtn1')  && Up Cmnd button
frmMyForm.AddObject('cmdCmndBtn2','cmdMyCmndBtn2')  && Down Cmnd button
frmMyForm.AddObject('cmdCmndBtn3','cmdMyCmndBtn3')  && Quit Cmnd button

frmMyForm.shpLine.Visible = .T.  && Make Line control visible
frmMyForm.shpLine.Top = 20  && Specify Line control row
frmMyForm.shpLine.Left = 125  && Specify Line control column

frmMyForm.cmdCmndBtn1.Visible =.T.  && Up Command button visible
frmMyForm.cmdCmndBtn2.Visible =.T.  && Down" Command button visible
frmMyForm.cmdCmndBtn3.Visible =.T.  && Quit Command button visible

frmMyForm.SHOW  && Display the form
READ EVENTS  && Start event processing

DEFINE CLASS cmdMyCmndBtn1 AS COMMANDBUTTON  && Create Command button
   Caption = 'Slant \<Up'  && Caption on the Command button
   Left = 50  && Command button column
   Top = 100  && Command button row
   Height = 25  && Command button height
   
   PROCEDURE Click
      ThisForm.shpLine.Visible = .F.  && Hide the Line control
      ThisForm.shpLine.LineSlant ='/'  && Slant up
      ThisForm.shpLine.Visible = .T.  && Show the Line control
ENDDEFINE

DEFINE CLASS cmdMyCmndBtn2 AS CommandButton  && Create Command button
   Caption = 'Slant \<Down'  && Caption on the Command button
   Left = 200  && Command button column
   Top = 100  && Command button row
   Height = 25  && Command button height

   PROCEDURE Click
      ThisForm.shpLine.Visible = .F.  && Hide the Line control
      ThisForm.shpLine.LineSlant ='\'  && Slant down
      ThisForm.shpLine.Visible = .T.  && Show the Line control
ENDDEFINE

DEFINE CLASS cmdMyCmndBtn3 AS CommandButton  && Create Command button
   Caption = '\<Quit'  && Caption on the Command button
   Cancel = .T.  && Default Cancel Command button (Esc)
   Left = 125  && Command button column
