Property Value

Type: System.Single
The point, relative to the top of the page, where you want the invisible grid for drawing, moving, and resizing AutoShapes or East Asian characters to begin in the document.

GridOriginFromMargin must be false for this property to be used.

The following code example sets the horizontal and vertical point of origin for the grid, sets the horizontal and vertical distance between gridlines, and then enables the Snap objects to grid feature for the document. To use this example, run it from the ThisDocument class in a document-level project.

private void DocumentGridDistanceHorizontal()
{
    this.GridOriginHorizontal = 80;
    this.GridOriginVertical = 90;
    this.GridDistanceHorizontal = 9;
    this.GridDistanceVertical = 9;
    this.SnapToGrid = true;
    this.Application.Options.DisplayGridLines = true;
}
