public virtual int ScreenPixelsHeight { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.Int32

The approximate height of the display, in pixels. The default is 72.

The returned value can be derived from the assumed character size and character height. The algorithm for determining the pixel height uses a combination of the default font sizes (from a .config file), device-specific sizes (again, from a .config file), and explicit headers sent by the devices. These values are not necessarily exact. Some devices might rely on internal default values, which only approximate the actual height.
