Specifies the top edge of the shape's containing rectangle relative to the shape anchor. Read/write. String.

Applies To

Shape

Tag Syntax

<v: element margin-top=" expression ">

Script Syntax

element .margin-top="expression"

expression=element.margin-top

Remarks

The Margin-Top attribute is similar to the standard HTML Margin-Top attribute used with style sheets.

Note that margintop is used instead of margin-top for scripting. Also note that if the position is absolute, the margin will not appear to change.

This property is used instead of Top for shapes in Microsoft Word and Microsoft Excel that are floating in a position relative to an anchor point.

Values include:

Value Description
Auto Default position of an element in the flow of the page.
units Default. A number with an absolute units designator (cm, mm, in, pt, pc, or px) or a relative units designator (em or ex). If no units are given, pixels (px) is assumed. The default value is 0.
percentage Value expressed as a percentage of the parent object's height.
