Syntax
public enum HeightRule
Members
Member nameValueDescription
Auto0 The height will grow automatically to accommodate all text inside an object.
AtLeast1 The height will be at least the specified height in points. It will grow, if needed, to accommodate all text inside an object.
Exact2 The height is specified exactly in points. Please note that if the text cannot fit inside the object of this height, it will appear truncated.
