Button.Height Property

Gets or sets the height of the Button.

Namespace: Microsoft.Office.Tools.Word.Controls
Assembly: Microsoft.Office.Tools.Word (in microsoft.office.tools.word.dll)

public virtual float Height { get; set; }

Property Value

The height of the Button in points.

Changes made to the Height and Top property values cause the Bottom property value of the Button to change.

The Button.Height property uses points, whereas System.Windows.Forms.Control.Height property uses pixels.

The following code example demonstrates the Height property of the Button control. The example adds two Button controls named sizeButton and locationButton to a document. When sizeButton is clicked, the Height and Width properties are adjusted so that the button changes size. When locationButton is clicked, the Top and Left properties are adjusted so that the button changes location. After each button is modified, the example displays the new Right, Bottom, Height, Width, Top and Left property values of the clicked button in a message box.

private void ModifySizeAndLocation()
{
    // Create a button that resizes when clicked.
    Microsoft.Office.Tools.Word.Controls.Button sizeButton =
        this.Controls.AddButton(25, 25, 80, 30, "sizeButton");
    sizeButton.Name = "sizeButton";
    sizeButton.Text = "Click to change size";
    sizeButton.Click += new EventHandler(modifyButtons_Click);

    // Create a button that moves when clicked.
    Microsoft.Office.Tools.Word.Controls.Button locationButton =
        this.Controls.AddButton(50, 100, 80, 30, "locationButton");
    locationButton.Name = "locationButton";
    locationButton.Text = "Click to change location";
    locationButton.Click += new EventHandler(modifyButtons_Click);
}

// Represents the toggle states of the buttons.
private bool toggleState1 = true;
private bool toggleState2 = true;

// Modify the appearance of the clicked button.
void modifyButtons_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
{
    Microsoft.Office.Tools.Word.Controls.Button clickedButton =
        (Microsoft.Office.Tools.Word.Controls.Button)sender;

    // Toggle the Height and Width of sizeButton.
    if (clickedButton.Name == "sizeButton")
    {
        if (toggleState1)
        {
            clickedButton.Height = 40;
            clickedButton.Width = 50;
            toggleState1 = false;
        }
        else
        {
            clickedButton.Height = 30;
            clickedButton.Width = 80;
            toggleState1 = true;
        }
    }

    // Toggle the Left and Top of locationButton.
    else
    {
        if (toggleState2)
        {
            clickedButton.Left = 25;
            clickedButton.Top = 150;
            toggleState2 = false;
        }
        else
        {
            clickedButton.Left = 50;
            clickedButton.Top = 100;
            toggleState2 = true;
        }
    }

    // Display the new property values.
    MessageBox.Show("Right: " +
        clickedButton.Right.ToString() +
        "\nBottom: " + clickedButton.Bottom.ToString() +
        "\nTop: " + clickedButton.Top.ToString() +
        "\nLeft: " + clickedButton.Left.ToString() +
        "\nHeight: " + clickedButton.Height.ToString() +
        "\nWidth: " + clickedButton.Width.ToString());
}
