Namespace:   Microsoft.Office.Tools.Word
Assembly:  Microsoft.Office.Tools.Word.v4.0.Utilities (in Microsoft.Office.Tools.Word.v4.0.Utilities.dll)

public bool GridOriginFromMargin { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.Boolean

true if Microsoft Office Word starts the character grid from the upper-left corner of the page; otherwise, false.

When GridOriginFromMargin is false, GridOriginHorizontal and GridOriginVertical are used.

The following code example sets the horizontal and vertical point of origin for the grid, sets the horizontal and vertical distance between gridlines, and then enables the Snap objects to grid feature for the document. To use this example, run it from the ThisDocument class in a document-level project.

private void DocumentGridDistanceHorizontal()
{
    this.GridOriginHorizontal = 80;
    this.GridOriginVertical = 90;
    this.GridDistanceHorizontal = 9;
    this.GridDistanceVertical = 9;
    this.SnapToGrid = true;
    this.Application.Options.DisplayGridLines = true;
}
