VerticalAlignment Enumeration

Describes how a child element is vertically positioned or stretched within a parent's layout slot.

Namespace: System.Windows
Assembly: PresentationFramework (in presentationframework.dll)
XML Namespace:  http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml/presentation

'Declaration
<LocalizabilityAttribute(LocalizationCategory.None, Readability:=Readability.Unreadable)> _
Public Enumeration VerticalAlignment
'Usage
Dim instance As VerticalAlignment

/** @attribute LocalizabilityAttribute(LocalizationCategory.None, Readability=Readability.Unreadable) */ 
public enum VerticalAlignment
LocalizabilityAttribute(LocalizationCategory.None, Readability=Readability.Unreadable) 
public enum VerticalAlignment
<object property="EnumerationValue" .../>

 Member nameDescription
BottomThe child element is aligned to the bottom of the parent's layout slot.  
CenterThe child element is aligned to the center of the parent's layout slot.  
StretchThe child element stretches to fill the parent's layout slot.  
TopThe child element is aligned to the top of the parent's layout slot.  

Height and Width properties that are explicitly set on an element take precedence over the Stretch property value.

The following example demonstrates how to use the VerticalAlignment enumeration in code and Extensible Application Markup Language (XAML).

Dim myTextBlock As New TextBlock()
myTextBlock.FontSize = 18
myTextBlock.HorizontalAlignment = Windows.HorizontalAlignment.Center
myTextBlock.Text = "VerticalAlignment Sample"
Grid.SetRow(myTextBlock, 0)
Dim myButton1 As New Button()
myButton1.VerticalAlignment = Windows.VerticalAlignment.Top
myButton1.Content = "Button 1 (Top)"
Grid.SetRow(myButton1, 1)
Dim myButton2 As New Button()
myButton2.VerticalAlignment = Windows.VerticalAlignment.Bottom
myButton2.Content = "Button 2 (Bottom)"
Grid.SetRow(myButton2, 2)
Dim myButton3 As New Button()
myButton3.VerticalAlignment = Windows.VerticalAlignment.Center
myButton3.Content = "Button 3 (Center)"
Grid.SetRow(myButton3, 3)
Dim myButton4 As New Button()
myButton4.VerticalAlignment = Windows.VerticalAlignment.Stretch
myButton4.Content = "Button 4 (Stretch)"
Grid.SetRow(myButton4, 4)
