The FlowLayoutSettings class collects and manages the characteristics associated with the flow layout scheme. This class is used internally by the FlowLayoutPanel and ToolStrip classes, as well as the flow layout engine. The FlowLayoutSettings class is used by the layout engine to determine how to layout the container's child controls.

The FlowLayoutSettings class manages the following information:

  • The flow direction of consecutive controls.

  • Whether the contents should be wrapped or clipped if the child controls cannot be contained within their parent.

FlowLayoutSettings does not have a public constructor.
