Label.TopMargin Property

Office 2007
Along with the LeftMargin, RightMargin, and BottomMargin properties, specifies the location of information displayed within a label control. Read/write Integer.



expression   A variable that represents a Label object.


A control's displayed information location is measured from the control's left, top, right, or bottom border to the left, top, right, or bottom edge of the displayed information. Setting the LeftMargin or TopMargin property to 0 places the displayed information's edge at the very left or top of the control. To use a unit of measurement different from the setting in the regional settings of Windows, specify the unit (for example, cm or in).

In Visual Basic, use a numeric expression to set the value of this property. Values are expressed in twips.


The following example offsets the caption in the label "EmployeeID_Label" in the "Purchase Orders" form by 100 twips from the top of the label's border.

Visual Basic for Applications
With Forms.Item("Purchase Orders").Controls.Item("EmployeeID_Label")
    .TopMargin = 100
End With
