The following code example demonstrates how the CheckAlign property can be changed at run time. The check box portion of a RadioButton is moved to the right or left of the text when the Checked value changes. This example requires that a RadioButton control has been instantiated on a form and that a reference to the System.Drawing namespace has been included.

private void radioButton1_CheckedChanged(Object sender, 
                                         EventArgs e)
   // Change the check box position to be opposite its current position.
   if (radioButton1.CheckAlign == ContentAlignment.MiddleLeft)
      radioButton1.CheckAlign = ContentAlignment.MiddleRight;
      radioButton1.CheckAlign = ContentAlignment.MiddleLeft;
