How to konw the exact size of a font from the point size to implement in an IFont->put_size?

For example:

Point size 8 is actually 8.25
Point size 9 is actually 9
Point size 10 is actually 9.75
Point size 11 is actually 11.25
Point size 12 is actually 12
Point size 14 is actually 14.25

Thanks

HRESULT put_Size(
  CY size  //Size of the font
);
size of the font expressed in a 64-bit CY variable. The upper 32-bits of this value contains the integer point size and the lower 32-bits contains the fractional point size.

   lfHeight = -MulDiv(PointSize, GetDeviceCaps(hDC, LOGPIXELSY), 72);

I need exactly the opposite.

I have the Height of the font, but I need to convert that Height in to PointSize (Not the rounded PointSize the exact PointSize). See my original post.

Well, not sure if I understood you, but if  ' height = f (point_size) ' and the function f  is bijective then you can calculate point_size=inverse_f( height).
   
 double  dPointSize = (double)(-lfHEight * 72)/GetDeviceCaps(hDC, LOGPIXELSY);

 Am I missing something?
