Assembly:  System.Windows (in System.Windows.dll)

Public Property HorizontalOffset As Double
<Popup HorizontalOffset="double"/>

Property Value

Type: System.Double
The distance, in logical pixels, between the left side of the application and the left side of the popup.

Dependency property identifier field: HorizontalOffsetProperty

By default, the popup displays in the upper-left corner of the application content. You can change this positioning by setting the HorizontalOffset and VerticalOffset properties.

The following example shows how to use the VerticalOffset and HorizontalOffset properties to determine where the popup displays on the application. The popup content is created inline for conciseness, but you would typically create this content in a separate user control and use an instance of that control as the child of the popup.

' Create the popup object. 
Private p As New Popup()
Private Sub showPopup_Click(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As RoutedEventArgs)
    ' Create some content to show in the popup. Typically you would 
    ' create a user control. 
    Dim border As New Border()
    border.BorderBrush = New SolidColorBrush(Colors.Black)
    border.BorderThickness = New Thickness(5)

    Dim panel1 As New StackPanel()
    panel1.Background = New SolidColorBrush(Colors.LightGray)

    Dim button1 As New Button()
    button1.Content = "Close"
    button1.Margin = New Thickness(5)
    AddHandler button1.Click, AddressOf button1_Click
    Dim textblock1 As New TextBlock()
    textblock1.Text = "The popup control"
    textblock1.Margin = New Thickness(5)
    border.Child = panel1

    ' Set the Child property of Popup to the border 
    ' which contains a stackpanel, textblock and button. 
    p.Child = border

    ' Set where the popup will show up on the screen. 
    p.VerticalOffset = 150
    p.HorizontalOffset = 150

    ' Open the popup. 
    p.IsOpen = True

End Sub

Private Sub button1_Click(ByVal sender As Object, _
    ByVal e As RoutedEventArgs)
    ' Close the popup. 
    p.IsOpen = False

End Sub
