How can I know the HEIGHT occupied by a font?
Builder gives the height of the font minus the leading space. This space varies from font to font. How can I find out its value?

Use the GetTextMetrics() function.  This fills in a TEXTMETRIC structure that has the information you want.  The tmHeight is the height without taking the external leading into account.  The external leading is also specified in the structure as well as lots of other fugures.

Let me know if you have questions.

Or Builder 1 doesn´t  have that function or my release is incomplete.
I found out a way using the Canvas->TextHeight function.

Thank you any way.

(i'm using B.C++ B. 3.0)
try:

int x,y;
x=Label1->Font->Width;
y=Label1->Font->Height;

Read the question history.  He already found an answer three weeks ago.  It is not a good idea to go through the old questions and answer them unless you check that an answer is still needed.
