Orientation Property

TrackBar.Orientation Property

Gets or sets a value indicating the horizontal or vertical orientation of the track bar.

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

public Orientation Orientation { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.Windows.Forms.Orientation
One of the Orientation values.


The assigned value is not one of the Orientation values.

When the Orientation property is set to Orientation.Horizontal, the scroll box moves from left to right as the Value increases. When the Orientation property is set to Orientation.Vertical, the scroll box moves from bottom to top as the Value increases.

The following example demonstrates how to set some of the TrackBar properties.

trackBar2.Orientation = Orientation.Vertical;
trackBar3.Orientation = Orientation.Vertical;
trackBar1.Maximum = trackBar2.Maximum = trackBar3.Maximum = 255;
trackBar1.Width = 400;
trackBar2.Height = trackBar3.Height = trackBar1.Width;
trackBar1.LargeChange = trackBar2.LargeChange = trackBar3.LargeChange = 16;
