Property Value

The approximate height of the display, in character lines. The default is 6.

The returned value can be derived from the assumed character size and actual screen pixel size. The algorithm for determining the height uses a combination of the default font sizes (from a .config file), browser-specific sizes (again, from a .config file), and explicit headers sent by the browser. Some browsers might rely on internal default values, which only approximate the actual height.
