FixedPage.SetLeft Method (UIElement, Double)


Sets the distance between the left side of an element and the left side of its parent Canvas.

Namespace:   System.Windows.Documents
Assembly:  PresentationFramework (in PresentationFramework.dll)

public static void SetLeft(
	UIElement element,
	double length


Type: System.Windows.UIElement

The element on which to set the left offset.

Type: System.Double

The new distance between the left side of the element and the left side of its parent canvas.

The child element's left offset does not affect the size of the parent canvas.

If both a left and right offset have been specified on the same element, the left offset takes precedence.

When setting the left offset as a percentage, the percentage value is based on the width of the parent canvas.

The following example shows use of the SetLeft method.

// --------------------- CreateFifthPageContent -----------------------
/// <summary>
///   Creates the content for the fifth fixed page.</summary>
/// <returns>
///   The page content for the fifth fixed page.</returns>
private PageContent CreateFifthPageContent()
    PageContent pageContent = new PageContent();
    FixedPage   fixedPage   = new FixedPage();
    UIElement   visual      = CreateThirdVisual(false);

    FixedPage.SetLeft(visual, 0);
    FixedPage.SetTop(visual, 0);

    double pageWidth = 96 * 8.5;
    double pageHeight = 96 * 11;

    fixedPage.Width = pageWidth;
    fixedPage.Height = pageHeight;


    Size sz = new Size(8.5 * 96, 11 * 96);
    fixedPage.Arrange(new Rect(new Point(), sz));

    return pageContent;
}// end:CreateFifthPageContent()
