Hi Songjian,

Thanks for your interest in Syncfusion products.

We suggest you to use the TextNode.BoundingRectangle’s ‘Width and Height’ properties to get height and width of the node respectively and use TextNode.FontStyle’s ‘Size’ property to get the size of the font in TextNode. Please refer the below code snippet to achieve your requirement.

Here is the code:
//Getting TextNode's properties in ButtonClick
private void button1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
if (diagram1.View.SelectionList.Count != 0)
foreach (Node node in diagram1.View.SelectionList)
if (node is TextNode)
float width = ((TextNode)node).BoundingRectangle.Width;
float height = ((TextNode)node).BoundingRectangle.Height;
float fntSize = ((TextNode)node).FontStyle.Size;
MessageBox.Show("Width:" + width + " " + "Height:" + height + " " + "Font Size:" + fntSize);
MessageBox.Show("Please select a TextNode");

Here is the Sample:

Please try the above sample and let us know if you have any queries.

Sorry, I think I can't accurately express my question. My question is that how to get the textnode height when the textnode width and font size is known.Thank you!

Hi Songjian,

We regret for the delay in getting back to you.

Please note that the TextNode’s Width/Height are not related to font size and they return Node’s bounds size. You can get the TextNode’s height by either BoundingRectangle.Height or TextNode.Size.Height.

Please let me know if you have any concerns.
