String representation of a Double value. This is interpreted as a device-independent unit (1/96th inch) measurement. Strings need not explicitly include decimal points. For instance a value of 1 is acceptable.


A double value as described above, followed by one of the following unit declaration strings: px, in, cm, pt.

px (default) is device-independent units (1/96th inch per unit)

in is inches; 1in==96px

cm is centimeters; 1cm==(96/2.54) px

pt is points; 1pt==(96/72) px

The following example demonstrates how to set the position of a Label on an InkCanvas.

<InkCanvas Name="inkCanvas2" Width="200" Height="200" Background="Green">
  <Label Name="label1" Background="Black"  Foreground="White" InkCanvas.Left="50" InkCanvas.Right="100" 
         InkCanvas.Top="50" InkCanvas.Bottom="100">my label</Label>
