<control VerticalContentAlignment="verticalAlignmentValue"/>

XAML Values

verticalAlignmentValue

A named constant of the VerticalAlignment enumeration, such as Stretch.

Property value

Type: VerticalAlignment

One of the VerticalAlignment values. The default is Top.

Remarks

Each control might apply this property differently based on the Style setters for the control's implicit style, and its visual template. Also, the apparent "default value" of each individual control used in UI can be different. For example, a Button control starts with the value Center.

A value for the VerticalContentAlignment property only affects layout behavior for a control when its template uses the VerticalContentAlignment property as the source of a VerticalAlignment value for presenters or content areas within. On other controls, setting VerticalContentAlignment has no effect. For more info about visual templates for controls, see the reference for Control.Template.
