ComboBox.GetItemHeight Method (Int32)


Returns the height of an item in the ComboBox.

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

member GetItemHeight : 
        index:int -> int


Type: System.Int32

The index of the item to return the height of.

Return Value

Type: System.Int32

The height, in pixels, of the item at the specified index.

Exception Condition

The index is less than zero.


The index is greater than count of items in the list.

If DrawMode is not set to OwnerDrawVariable, the value of the index parameter is ignored because all items in a standard ComboBox are the same size. You can use this property when you are using an owner-drawn ComboBox to determine the size of any item within the ComboBox.

For more information about specifying the height for items in an owner-drawn list, see MeasureItem event.
