Control.Right Property

Gets the distance, in pixels, between the right edge of the control and the left edge of its container's client area.

[Visual Basic]
Public ReadOnly Property Right As Integer
[C#]
public int Right {get;}
[C++]
public: __property int get_Right();
[JScript]
public function get Right() : int;

Property Value

An Int32 representing the distance, in pixels, between the right edge of the control and the left edge of its container's client area.

Remarks

The value of the Right property is equal to the sum of the Left property value and the Width property value.

The Right property is read-only. You can change this property value indirectly by changing the value of the Left or Width properties or calling the SetBounds, SetBoundsCore, UpdateBounds, or SetClientSizeCore methods.

Example

[Visual Basic, C#, C++] The following example creates three Button controls on a form and sets their size and location by using the various size-related and location-related properties. This example assumes you have a Form that has a width and height of at least 300 pixels.

[Visual Basic] 
' Create three buttons and place them on a form using 
' several size and location related properties. 
Private Sub AddOKCancelButtons()
   ' Set the button size and location using 
      ' the Size and Location properties. 
   Dim buttonOK As New Button()
   buttonOK.Location = New Point(136, 248)
   buttonOK.Size = New Size(75, 25)
   ' Set the Text property and make the 
   ' button the form's default button. 
   buttonOK.Text = "&OK"
   Me.AcceptButton = buttonOK
   
   ' Set the button size and location using the Top, 
   ' Left, Width, and Height properties. 
   Dim buttonCancel As New Button()
   buttonCancel.Top = buttonOK.Top
   buttonCancel.Left = buttonOK.Right + 5
   buttonCancel.Width = buttonOK.Width
   buttonCancel.Height = buttonOK.Height
   ' Set the Text property and make the 
   ' button the form's cancel button. 
   buttonCancel.Text = "&Cancel"
   Me.CancelButton = buttonCancel
   
   ' Set the button size and location using 
   ' the Bounds property. 
   Dim buttonHelp As New Button()
   buttonHelp.Bounds = New Rectangle(10, 10, 75, 25)
   ' Set the Text property of the button.
   buttonHelp.Text = "&Help"
