Property Value

Type: System.Int32

An Int32 representing the distance, in pixels, between the left edge of the control and the left edge of its container's client area.

The Left property value is equivalent to the Point.X property of the Location property value of the control.

Changes made to the Width and Left property values cause the Right property value of the control to change.

The following code example creates three Button controls on a form and sets their size and location by using the various size-related and location-related properties. This example requires that you have a Form that has a width and height of at least 300 pixels.
