TableCaptionAlign Enumeration

Specifies the horizontal or vertical placement of the text to render as the HTML caption element.

Namespace:  System.Web.UI.WebControls
Assembly:  System.Web (in System.Web.dll)

public enum TableCaptionAlign

Member nameDescription
BottomThe caption element is aligned with the bottom of the table.
LeftThe caption element is aligned with the left side of the table.
NotSetThe caption alignment is not set. The browser that renders the caption determines where to align the caption.
RightThe caption element is aligned with the right side of the table.
TopThe caption element is aligned with the top of the table.

The TableCaptionAlign enumeration represents the horizontal or vertical placement of the HTML caption element in controls that can be rendered as tables, such as Table, GridView, DetailsView, or Calendar. For example, the CaptionAlign property uses these enumeration values to set the caption alignment in a Table control.

If you specify NotSet, the browser in which the control is rendered determines where to align the caption.

The CaptionAlign property specifies the position of the caption element with respect to controls that can be rendered as tables. The Caption property specifies the text to display in the caption element. Assistive technology devices can use the description provided by the Caption property to make the control more accessible. For example, a screen reader device might read the caption to the user to provide them with a description of the table.

The following example demonstrates how to use the TableCaptionAlign enumeration to set the CaptionAlign property in a Table control. The Table control contains TableRow objects that display City and ZIP Code values.
