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

Property Value

One of the HorizontalAlign values. The default is NotSet.

The HorizontalAlign property specifies the horizontal alignment of the contents within a panel control.

The HorizontalAlign property is set using one of the HorizontalAlign enumeration values. The following table lists the possible values.




The horizontal alignment is not set.


The contents of the panel are left-aligned.


The contents of the panel are centered.


The contents of the panel are right-aligned.


. If the HorizontalAlign property is set to NotSet but the property is set in the control that contains the panel control, the setting is inherited from the containing control.

The following code example sets the HorizontalAlign properties of two panel controls, Panel1 and Panel2, to the HorizontalAlign.Center enumeration value. For an .aspx file that can be used to run the example, see the PanelStyle topic.

public partial class PanelStylecs_aspx : Page
    void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
        StateBag panelState = new StateBag();
        PanelStyle myPanelStyle = new PanelStyle(panelState);
        // Set the properties of the PanelStyle class.
        myPanelStyle.HorizontalAlign = HorizontalAlign.Center;
        myPanelStyle.ScrollBars = ScrollBars.Both;
        myPanelStyle.Wrap = false;
        myPanelStyle.Direction = ContentDirection.LeftToRight;
        myPanelStyle.BackImageUrl = @"~\images\picture.jpg";

        // Use the ApplyStyle method of the Panel control to apply
        // the settings from the myPanelStyle object.
