Use ClientHeight to determine the height (in pixels) of the form’s client area. The client area is the usable area inside the form's border, excluding the title bar, scroll bars, and so on.

So the next code will get the TitleBar Height if you have not Horizontal ScrollBar and MainMenu ....

procedure TForm_Main.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
  TitleBarHeight: Integer;
  TitleBarHeight := Height - ClientHeight;
