NoteImportant:

The GetAutoScaleSize method is obsolete in.NET Framework version 2.0. This member has been retained for backward compatibility. For more information about automatic scaling, see Automatic Scaling in Windows Forms.

You can use this method to determine the size a form would autoscale to for a specific font before applying the font to the form. If you want to determine the size a form is autoscaled to based on the font currently assigned to the form, use the AutoScaleBaseSize property.
