FontHeight.getHeights() returns heights in what units?

Anyone know?

 

When I get the heights for any font, they don't seem to match what's displayed in Screen/Keyboard for that font.

 

thanks...george

Re: FontHeight.getHeights() returns heights in what units?

The getHeight() method of net.rim.device.api.ui.Font returns the height in pixels.  There a detailed explanation of fonts in the JavaDocs for Font. There is also a getHeight(int arg0) method on Font but it is not documented and therefore not supported. It may return the height in the specified units similar to the derive(int style, int height, int units) method.

Re: FontHeight.getHeights() returns heights in what units?

So I guess I can assume that FontHeight.getHeights() calls getHeight() on each font in the family and returns that in the array. 

 

Thanks Kurt.
