..MaxHeight is used to find out and modify the maximum height of a control or window.
By default, the maximum height:
  • of a control is equal to 2 147 483 647 (0x7FFFFFFF). This value is equivalent to "no maximum size limit".
  • of a window is equal to 20 000. However, the size of windows should not exceed the size of the screen.
Reminder: The maximum height of a control or window is used during the following operations:
  • Window resized by the user.
  • Management of anchors.
The maximum height of a control or window is not used when the window is resized by programming (..Height or WinSize).

Syntax

Finding out the maximum height of an element Hide the details

<Current maximum height> = <Element name>..MaxHeight
<Current maximum height>: Integer
Maximum height of specified element (including the border) expressed in pixels.
<Element name>: Character string (with or without quotes)
Name of element (window or control) whose maximum height will be calculated.

Modifying the maximum height of an element Hide the details

<Element name>..MaxHeight = <New maximum height>
<Element name>: Character string (with or without quotes)
Name of element (window or control) whose maximum height will be modified.
<New maximum height>: Integer
New maximum height of element (including the border) expressed in pixels.
Remarks

Initial height (control and window)

The initial height (described in the editor) is returned by ..InitialHeight.
In most cases, the object height depends on ..MaxHeight and ..MinHeight. However, this constraint disappears when the height is modified by programming (..Height or WinSize).

Limits for the controls and windows

In Windows 98, the size of elements is limited to ± 32 767. In Windows NT/2000, it is possible (but not recommended) to specify a size up to ± 2 147 483 647.
