How to: Set Margins of Elements and Controls This example describes how to set the Margin property, by changing any existing property value for the margin in code-behind. The Margin property is a property of the FrameworkElement base element, and is thus inherited by a variety of controls and other elements. For the complete sample, see Setting Margins Sample.
