[Visual Basic]

[C#]
public ContentAlignment CheckAlign {get; set;}
[C++]
public: __property ContentAlignment get_CheckAlign();
public: __property void set_CheckAlign(ContentAlignment);
[JScript]
public function get CheckAlign() : ContentAlignment;
public function set CheckAlign(ContentAlignment);

Property Value

One of the ContentAlignment values. The default value is MiddleLeft.

Exceptions

Exception Type Condition
InvalidEnumArgumentException The value assigned is not one of the ContentAlignment enumeration values.

Example

The following code example displays the values of three properties in a label. The ThreeState property alternates between true and false with alternating clicks of the button and the CheckAlign alternates between MiddleRight and MiddleLeft. This example shows how the property values change as the ThreeState property changes and the button is checked. This code assumes that a CheckBox, Label and Button have all been instantiated on a form and that the label is large enough to display three lines of text, as well as a reference to the System.Drawing namespace. This code should be called in the Click event handler of the button.

Private Sub AdjustMyCheckBoxProperties()
    ' Concatenate the property values together on three lines.
    label1.Text = "ThreeState: " & checkBox1.ThreeState.ToString() & ControlChars.Cr & _
        "Checked: " & checkBox1.Checked.ToString() & ControlChars.Cr & _
        "CheckState: " & checkBox1.CheckState.ToString()
    
    ' Change the ThreeState and CheckAlign properties on every other click.
    If Not checkBox1.ThreeState Then
        checkBox1.ThreeState = True
        checkBox1.CheckAlign = ContentAlignment.MiddleRight
    Else
        checkBox1.ThreeState = False
        checkBox1.CheckAlign = ContentAlignment.MiddleLeft
