Topic: Font Height Problem
Conf: (P-PDF) Developers, Msg: 132603

Hi All,

I have a pdf with CMex10 font... the Font Dictionary has the ascent and Descent for the font as 0 ...

And i am using the following Formulas for the height that the font takes up :

YMin = CurrentY - font->getAscent() * fontSize
YMax = CurrentY - font->getDescent() * fontSize
nHeight = YMax - YMin

where getDescent() always returns a negative value.

But in this case the Height would come out to be zero since both YMax and YMin would be same.... so how do i caluculate the height for this text.

The PDF is showing the text ... with the correct height.

Please Help

Thanks and regards
Soorajchirag
