HTML DOM Style lineHeight Property

HTMLWeb DevelopmentFront End Technology

The HTML DOM Style lineHeight property is used to set the line height, which is the distance between the lines in a text.

Following is the syntax to set the lineHeight property −

object.style.lineHeight

Following is the syntax to return the lineHeight property −

object.style.lineHeight = "normal|number|length|%|initial|inherit"

Above, the values are described below −

  • normal: Normal line height. Default.
  • number: A number multiplied with the current font size to set the line height
  • length: line height in length units
  • %: line height in % of the current font size
  • initial: Sets this property to its default value.
  • inherit: Inherits this property from its parent element.

Let us now see an example to implement the DOM Style lineHeight property −
