Queries window's toolbar height.
This is the height for any toolbars between content and the window top border.

On MacOS without frame, the top height is for example about 50 pixels for two toolbars in the window. With Frame, you include 81 pixels for toolbar and window title. So top height can be 131 as an example.

Ruler is not included in that height, as it's part of FileMaker's content.
