ContentPadding

ContentPadding
is an option for objects that can be displayed with frames that specifies whether the vertical margins should shrink wrap tightly around the contents.
  • With the setting ContentPadding->True, the height of the content area of a framed object will be an integer multiple of full line heights, even if the contents of a given line do not span the full height of the line.
  • A setting of ContentPadding->False shrinks the content area tightly around the contents instead of rounding to the next full line height.
  • The internal margin of a framed object is set by adding the value of FrameMargins to the margin area controlled by ContentPadding.
By default, a button spans the full line height of the font used to populate its contents:
Create a button that is shorter than the line height for the font it uses:
Compare margins for labels with and without ascenders and descenders:
