screen height?

There must be a simple way (?) to get the screen height (not my application window, but the actual screen height).  For example, I know my screen height is "480", but I shouldn't have to hard code this. Anyone know the answer to this?
          Thanks a bunch,

I suppose "height" is referring to height in pixels.
In that case look at the TScreen object.
Screen.Height and Screen.Width will give you the desired information

Thanks for the info.  I figured Delphi had a fairly simple way
of accessing it, but sometimes the easiest things are the
hardest to find !! :)
