The Element.clientHeight read-only property is zero for elements with no CSS or inline layout boxes, otherwise it's  the inner height of an element in pixels, including padding but not the horizontal scrollbar height, border, or margin.

clientHeight can be calculated as CSS height + CSS padding - height of horizontal scrollbar (if present).

Note: This property will round the value to an integer. If you need a fractional value, use element.getBoundingClientRect().
