 double   Double  A string representation of a Double value. This value is interpreted as a device-independent unit (1/96th inch) measurement. Strings need not explicitly include decimal points. For example, you can specify a value of 1. The same Double range restrictions, as mentioned in the Property Value section, apply here.  qualifiedDouble  A double value that is followed by one of these unit declaration strings: px, in, cm, pt.  px (default) is device-independent units (1/96th inch per unit)  in is inches; 1in==96px  cm is centimeters; 1cm==(96/2.54) px  pt is points; 1pt==(96/72) px  Auto  An automatic line height determination. If you programmatically set the auto value, its value corresponds to Double.NaN.  

Property Value

A double that specifies the height of each line box. This value must be equal to or greater than 0.0034 and equal to or less then 160000. A value of Double.NaN (equivalent to an attribute value of Auto) causes the line height is determined automatically from the current font characteristics. The default is Double.NaN.
