Orientation Enumeration

Specifies the general layout of items within a composite control.

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

public enum Orientation

Member nameDescription
HorizontalLays out the elements of the control in a horizontal manner. Most controls are side-by-side, with very little stacking of controls.
VerticalLays out the elements of the control in a vertical manner. Most controls are stacked, with few controls side-by-side.

The following code example shows the results of applying different Orientation enumeration settings to the Login control.
