HorizontalAlign Enumeration

Specifies the horizontal alignment of items within a container.

Namespace:  System.Web.UI.WebControls
Assembly:  System.Web (in System.Web.dll)
public enum HorizontalAlign
Member nameDescription
CenterThe contents of a container are centered.
JustifyThe contents of a container are uniformly spread out and aligned with both the left and right margins.
LeftThe contents of a container are left justified.
NotSetThe horizontal alignment is not set.
RightThe contents of a container are right justified.

The HorizontalAlign enumeration represents the horizontal alignment options for items within a container, such as a TableCell.

The following example shows how setting the HorizontalAlign property of a Panel control changes the horizontal alignment for the text of a Label control that is contained by the Panel control.
