The hight of character

  • Hello,

    I use this font, and now I wont to know what is hight of a charchter?

    canvas1.loadFont("/fonts/GenSenRounded-R.ttf", SD);

    I use the above commands.
    Any sugestion?



  • @powersoft I kind of ran into this the other day. I found a font I liked online, but was not sure how to gauge the height of the font and the placement of the text on the screen. I ended up using trial and error which kind of sucked due to the lengthy compile and upload process.

  • This is available in the TFT_eSPI base class to canvas, but is not exposed to us.
    The following seems to work:

    int height = ((TFT_eSPI&)Canvas).fontHeight();
