'Declaration
<BindableAttribute(True)> _
Public Property HorizontalContentAlignment As HorizontalAlignment
<object HorizontalContentAlignment="HorizontalAlignment" .../>

Property Value

Type: System.Windows.HorizontalAlignment
One of the HorizontalAlignment values. The default is HorizontalAlignment.Left.

Identifier field

HorizontalContentAlignmentProperty

Metadata properties set to true

None

In addition to Left, Right, and Center, you can set the HorizontalContentAlignment property to Stretch, which stretches the child element to fill the allocated space of the parent element. For more information, see Alignment, Margins, and Padding Overview.

This property only affects a control whose template uses the HorizontalContentAlignment property as a parameter. On other controls, this property has no impact.

The following example shows how to set the horizontal content alignment property of a control.

<Button Name="btn7" 
        HorizontalContentAlignment="Left"
        Click="ChangeHorizontalContentAlignment">
  HorizontalContentAlignment
</Button>
Private Sub ChangeHorizontalContentAlignment(ByVal Sender As Object, ByVal e As RoutedEventArgs)

    If (btn7.HorizontalContentAlignment = HorizontalAlignment.Left) Then

        btn7.HorizontalContentAlignment = HorizontalAlignment.Right
        btn7.Content = "Control horizontal alignment changes from left to right." 

    Else

        btn7.HorizontalContentAlignment = HorizontalAlignment.Left
        btn7.Content = "HorizontalContentAlignment" 
    End If 
End Sub
