CheckedListBox.ItemHeight Property

Gets the height of the item area.

Namespace:  System.Windows.Forms
Assembly:  System.Windows.Forms (in System.Windows.Forms.dll)

public override int ItemHeight { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.Int32
The height, in pixels, of the item area.

This measurement is based on the font height plus a small margin to provide white space around the item.

The extenders of characters such as "g" and "y" do not display properly when the font is changed to 9.75-point Arial. To correct this, derive a class from CheckedListBox and override ItemHeight to return base.ItemHeight+2.
