Control.Padding Property

Gets or sets padding within the control.

Namespace:  System.Windows.Forms
Assembly:  System.Windows.Forms (in System.Windows.Forms.dll)

public Padding Padding { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.Windows.Forms.Padding
A Padding representing the control's internal spacing characteristics.

For containers such as GroupBox and TabControl, the Padding property gets or sets their respective DisplayRectangle properties. The ScrollableControl.DockPadding property is equal to its Control.Padding property.

Controls receive default values for Padding that are reasonably close to Windows user interface guidelines. Some adjustments might still be necessary for particular applications.

All controls that implement GetPreferredSize are enlarged by the amount in Padding when AutoSize is true.

The following controls do not use Padding:
