Property Value

Type: System.Windows::TextAlignment
One of the TextAlignment values that specifies the horizontal alignment of the contents of the text box. The default is TextAlignment::Left.

Getting this property returns the current alignment. Setting this property adjusts the contents of the text box to reflect the specified alignment.

This property has a higher precedence than the HorizontalContentAlignment property.

The following example shows how to create a TextBox with a TextAlignment of TextAlignment::Center.

      TextAlignment="Center"
      TextWrapping="Wrap"
