Returns descent of the current font at its current size.

Examples#

example picture for text_descent()
def setup():
    base = py5.height * 0.75
    scalar = 0.8  # different for each font

    py5.text_size(32)  # set initial text size
    a = py5.text_descent() * scalar  # calc ascent
    py5.line(0, base+a, py5.width, base+a)
    py5.text("dp", 0, base)  # draw text on baseline

    py5.text_size(64)  # increase text size
    a = py5.text_descent() * scalar  # recalc ascent
    py5.line(40, base+a, py5.width, base+a)
    py5.text("dp", 40, base)  # draw text on baseline

Description#

Returns descent of the current font at its current size. This information is useful for determining the height of the font below the baseline.
