GetY Tag

The GetY tag returns the printer head position, measured from the top margin (in millimeters) along the Y axis, and assigns it to the input variable.


GetY is an absolute mode-only tag that can be used with the SetX, SetY, and GetX tags to control the position of the printer head. Use the GetY tag in conjunction with the Cell, Picture, and Lineto tags to position objects in the printable area.
