The function measures the height of a formatted text block.
The function works in the same way as DynaPDF.GetFTextHeight but the output rectangle must not be set manually beforehand.
The height of the output rectangle is set to -1 to avoid a page break during measuring.
The parameter text must contain the same text (incl. format tags if any) as which should be printed
later with DynaPDF.GetFTextHeightEx.
