I think what you want is "the effective rect of this stack". The rect of 
the stack gives you the dimensions including the title bar. The 
effective rect gives you only the content dimentions. If you subtract 
item 2 of the effective stack rect from item 2 of the rect of the stack, 
you'll know the height of the title bar.
