TextBlock.BaselineOffset Property

Gets or sets the amount by which each line of text is offset from the baseline.

Namespace:  System.Windows.Controls
Assembly:  PresentationFramework (in PresentationFramework.dll)
XMLNS for XAML: http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml/presentation, http://schemas.microsoft.com/netfx/2007/xaml/presentation
public double BaselineOffset { get; set; }
<object BaselineOffset="double" .../>

Property Value

Type: System.Double
The amount by which each line of text is offset from the baseline, in device independent pixels. Double.NaN indicates that an optimal baseline offset is automatically calculated from the current font characteristics. The default is Double.NaN.

The baseline is the imaginary horizontal line with which the base of each character in a line of text is aligned.

This dependency property also has an attached property usage. In XAML, the usage is <object TextBlock.BaselineOffset="double".../>, where object is an object element (typically a flow element) contained within a TextBlock. In code, the attached property usage is supported by GetBaselineOffset and SetBaselineOffset.
