|string||The string to measure the height of.|
This function will return the height (in pixels) of the input
string. It is very handy for calculating distances between text
elements based on the tallest of the letters that make up the
string as it would be drawn with draw_text
using the currently defined font.
hh = string_height("ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ");
draw_text(32, 32, string(score));
draw_text(32, 32 + hh, string(lives);
The above code will get the height of the given string and then draw two lines of text, using the returned string height as a separator.
