Property Value

One of the LoginTextLayout enumeration values. The default is TextOnLeft.

Exception typeCondition


The TextLayout property is not set to a valid LoginTextLayout enumeration value.

The TextLayout property specifies where the PasswordRecovery control displays the field labels for the Answer, Question, and User Name text boxes. When the TextLayout property is set to TextOnLeft (the default), the field labels appear to the left of the text boxes. When TextLayout is set to TextOnTop, the field labels appear above the text boxes.

The text of the labels is specified in the AnswerLabelText, QuestionLabelText, and UserNameLabelText properties, respectively. The style settings for the field labels are specified in the LabelStyle property.

The following code example shows how changing the TextLayout property affects the appearance of the PasswordRecovery control.
