Padding is specified in the order Left, Top, Right, and Bottom. For more information, see Thickness and Alignment, Margins, and Padding Overview.

This property only affects a control whose template uses the Padding property as a parameter. On other controls, this property has no impact.

The following example shows how to set the padding property of a control.

<Button Name="btn11" Padding = "5" 
        Click="ChangePadding" TabIndex="1">
  Padding
</Button>
void ChangePadding(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e)
{
    if (btn11.Padding.Left == 5.0)
    {
        btn11.Padding = new Thickness(2.0);
        btn11.Content = "Control Padding changes from 5 to 2.";

    }
    else
    {
        btn11.Padding = new Thickness(5.0);
        btn11.Content = "Padding";
    }
}
