Namespace: System.Windows.Forms
Assembly: System.Windows.Forms (in system.windows.forms.dll)

public void set_Left (int value)

public function get Left () : int

public function set Left (value : int)

Property Value

The padding width, in pixels.

The padding width assigned to this property is applied only to the left edge of the docked control.

The following code example uses the derived class, Panel. The example docks a button in a panel control and cycles through the ScrollableControl.DockPaddingEdges properties, setting each individually on the click of the button. This code requires that a Panel control and a Button have been instantiated on a form, and a class-level member variable named myCounter has been declared as a 32-bit signed integer. This code should be called on the Click event of the button.

private void SetDockPadding()
 {
    // Dock the button in the panel.
    button1.Dock = System.Windows.Forms.DockStyle.Fill;
    
    // Reset the counter if it is greater than 5.
    if (myCounter > 5)
    {
       myCounter = 0;
    }
 
    /* Set the appropriate DockPadding and display
       which one was set on the button face. */
    switch (myCounter)
    {
       case 0:
          panel1.DockPadding.All = 0;
          button1.Text = "Start";
          break;
       case 1:
          panel1.DockPadding.Top = 10;
          button1.Text = "Top";
          break;
       case 2:
          panel1.DockPadding.Bottom = 10;
          button1.Text = "Bottom";
          break;
       case 3:
          panel1.DockPadding.Left = 10;
          button1.Text = "Left";
          break;
       case 4:
          panel1.DockPadding.Right = 10;
          button1.Text = "Right";
          break;
       case 5:
          panel1.DockPadding.All = 20;
          button1.Text = "All";
          break;
    }
    
    // Increment the counter.
    myCounter += 1;
 }
