The title pretty much says it all.  I have a Jquery dialog whose height is set to auto.  In a JavaScript function I want to get it's actual height.  I can get the height of the div that the dialog is based on but that is not quite the same as the dialog.  I can't find any way to get the height unless it is fixed.  Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks of all the different height properties I tried I didn't come across those two.
