I don't know if this'll help, but I made a post[1] a month and a half 
ago (with example code no less! :-)) which identifies how I dynamically 
change the size of the region-before & region-after at run-time. It is 
accomplished by making certain assumptions about font-size and/or 
line-height (.3cm w/ 9pt Courier font), and multiplying that by the 
number of lines I'm drawing.

Hope this helps or points you in the direction of something useful.
