        VerticalContentAlignment="Top" 
        Click="ChangeVerticalContentAlignment">
  VerticalContentAlignment
</Button>
void ChangeVerticalContentAlignment(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e)
{
    if (btn8.VerticalContentAlignment == VerticalAlignment.Top)
    {
        btn8.VerticalContentAlignment = VerticalAlignment.Bottom;
        btn8.Content = "Control vertical alignment changes from top to bottom.";

    }
    else
    {
        btn8.VerticalContentAlignment = VerticalAlignment.Top;
        btn8.Content = "VerticalContentAlignment";
    }
}
Private Sub ChangeVerticalContentAlignment(ByVal Sender As Object, ByVal e As RoutedEventArgs)

    If (btn8.VerticalContentAlignment = VerticalAlignment.Top) Then

        btn8.VerticalContentAlignment = VerticalAlignment.Bottom
        btn8.Content = "Control vertical alignment changes from top to bottom."

    Else

        btn8.VerticalContentAlignment = VerticalAlignment.Top
        btn8.Content = "VerticalContentAlignment"
