Control::Right Property

Gets the distance, in pixels, between the right edge of the control and the left edge of its container's client area.

Namespace:  System.Windows.Forms
Assembly:  System.Windows.Forms (in System.Windows.Forms.dll)

property int Right {
	int get ();

Property Value

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

The value of the Right property is equal to the sum of the Left property value and the Width property value.

The Right property is read-only. You can change this property value indirectly by changing the value of the Left or Width properties or calling the SetBounds, SetBoundsCore, UpdateBounds, or SetClientSizeCore methods.

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.

// Create three buttons and place them on a form using 
// several size and location related properties. 
void AddOKCancelButtons()

   // Set the button size and location using 
   // the Size and Location properties.
   Button^ buttonOK = gcnew Button;
   buttonOK->Location = Point(136,248);
   buttonOK->Size = System::Drawing::Size( 75, 25 );

   // Set the Text property and make the 
   // button the form's default button.
   buttonOK->Text = "&OK";
   this->AcceptButton = buttonOK;

   // Set the button size and location using the Top, 
   // Left, Width, and Height properties.
   Button^ buttonCancel = gcnew Button;
   buttonCancel->Top = buttonOK->Top;
   buttonCancel->Left = buttonOK->Right + 5;
   buttonCancel->Width = buttonOK->Width;
   buttonCancel->Height = buttonOK->Height;

   // Set the Text property and make the 
   // button the form's cancel button.
   buttonCancel->Text = "&Cancel";
   this->CancelButton = buttonCancel;

   // Set the button size and location using 
   // the Bounds property.
   Button^ buttonHelp = gcnew Button;
   buttonHelp->Bounds = Rectangle(10,10,75,25);

   // Set the Text property of the button.
   buttonHelp->Text = "&Help";

   // Add the buttons to the form. 
   array<Control^>^temp1 = {buttonOK,buttonCancel,buttonHelp};
   this->Controls->AddRange( temp1 );
   // This example demonstrates how to use the KeyUp event with the Help class to display 
   // pop-up style help to the user of the application. When the user presses F1, the Help 
   // class displays a pop-up window, similar to a ToolTip, near the control. This example assumes 
   // that a TextBox control, named textBox1, has been added to the form and its KeyUp 
   // event has been connected to this event handler method. 
   void textBox1_KeyUp( Object^ /*sender*/, System::Windows::Forms::KeyEventArgs^ e )

      // Determine whether the key entered is the F1 key. Display help if it is. 
      if ( e->KeyCode == Keys::F1 )

         // Display a pop-up help topic to assist the user.
         Help::ShowPopup( textBox1, "Enter your first name", Point(textBox1->Right,this->textBox1->Bottom) );
