The following three functions return size information about a window:
@defun window-height &optional window
This function returns the number of lines in @var{window}, including its
mode line and header line, if any. If @var{window} fills its entire
frame except for the echo area, this is typically one less than the
value of @code{frame-height} on that frame. The default for
@var{window} is the selected window.
This function returns the number of lines in @var{window} (by default
the selected window), including any mode line and header line.
The result is almost always less than the value of @code{frame-height}
for the associated frame, because the latter also includes any echo
area. Depending on the toolkit in use, the frame height can also
include the menu bar and tool bar (@pxref{Size and Position}).
Therefore in general it is not straightforward to compare window and
frame heights (see @code{window-full-height-p} below).
