HtmlTableCell.Align Property

Gets or sets the horizontal alignment of the content in the cell represented by an instance of the HtmlTableCell class.

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

public string Align { get; set; }
/** @property */
public String get_Align ()

/** @property */
public void set_Align (String value)

public function get Align () : String

public function set Align (value : String)

Property Value

The horizontal alignment of the content in the cell represented by an instance of HtmlTableCell. The default value is String.Empty, which indicates that this property is not set.

Use the Align property to specify the horizontal alignment of the content in a cell represented by an instance of the HtmlTableCell class.

NoteNote

Setting this property affects only the cell represented by an instance of the HtmlTableCell class. To apply the same alignment to the cells of an entire row in the table, set the Align property of the row represented by an instance of the HtmlTableRow class.

The following table lists the values that can be used for this property.

Value

Description

Left

Aligns the contents of a cell with the left edge of the cell.

Center

Aligns the contents of a cell in the middle of the cell.

Right

Aligns the contents of a cell with the right edge of the cell.

NoteNote

You can also use Justify and Char as values for this property; however, not all browsers support these features.

The following code example demonstrates how to use the Align property to programmatically control the alignment of the contents of the cells in an HtmlTable control.

<%@ Page Language="C#" AutoEventWireup="True" %>

<script runat="server">

  void Button_Click(Object sender, EventArgs e)
  {

    // Iterate through the rows of the table.
    for (int i = 0; i <= Table1.Rows.Count - 1; i++)
    {

      // Iterate through the cells of a row.
      for (int j = 0; j <= Table1.Rows[i].Cells.Count - 1; j++)
      {
        // Update the properties of each cell. 
        Table1.Rows[i].Cells[j].Align = AlignSelect.Value;
        Table1.Rows[i].Cells[j].NoWrap = Convert.ToBoolean(NoWrapSelect.Value);
        Table1.Rows[i].Cells[j].VAlign = VAlignSelect.Value;
      }

    }

  }
