ToolStripTextBox.TextBoxTextAlign Property

Gets or sets how text is aligned in a TextBox control.

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

public HorizontalAlignment TextBoxTextAlign { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.Windows.Forms.HorizontalAlignment
One of the HorizontalAlignment enumeration values that specifies how text is aligned in the control. The default is Left.

You can use this property to align the text within a TextBox to match the layout of text on your form. For example, if your controls are all located on the right side of the form, you can set the TextBoxTextAlign property to Right, and the text will be aligned with the right side of the control instead of the default left alignment.
