WoW API < GetScreenHeight

Returns the height of the window in pixels.

GetScreenHeight();

Arguments
none

Returns
Number screenHeight
screenHeight 
Height of window in pixels

Example
if( GetScreenHeight() * UIParent:GetEffectiveScale() == 600) then ChatFrame:AddMessage("Using 800x600 mode"); end
Result
Using 800x600 mode

Description
Returns the height of the window in pixels. This value is affected by the UI's scale.
Also note that the return value will not match the screen resolution chosen from the Video Options menu, but will instead represent a dimension with the same aspect ratio. For example, the following code...
DEFAULT_CHAT_FRAME:AddMessage( ( GetScreenWidth() * UIParent:GetEffectiveScale() ).."x"..( GetScreenHeight() * UIParent:GetEffectiveScale() ) );
...will print "960x768" for the actual screen resolution "1280x1024". Both of these dimensions share a 5:4 aspect ratio.
