    HorizontalAlignment Property (Appearance)
    In This Topic
    Gets or sets the horizontal alignment of an object or text in a cell.
    Public Property HorizontalAlignment As CellHorizontalAlignment
    Dim instance As Appearance
    Dim value As CellHorizontalAlignment
    instance.HorizontalAlignment = value
    value = instance.HorizontalAlignment
    public CellHorizontalAlignment HorizontalAlignment {get; set;}

    Property Value

    CellHorizontalAlignment object containing the horizontal alignment for cell contents

    The HorizontalAlignment and VerticalAlignment properties determine the alignment of the cell's content (that is, the text) which is independent of the alignment of the cell's background image. The Picture class has a constructor for supplying alignment of the background image.

    Valid values for this property are the horizontal alignment settings listed in the HorizontalAlign enumeration in the Microsoft .NET Framework Reference.  The Distributed enumeration adds space between the words so that they evenly fill the cell.

    For more information on cell types, refer to the FarPoint.Spread.CellType namespace and to Customizing with Cell Types.

    The setting for this property can be overridden if a named style is assigned to the cell using the StyleName property, and that named style sets the horizontal alignment.

    Use the VerticalAlignment property to specify the vertical alignment of the object or text.

    This example illustrates the use of this property. An Appearance object is used to set up the behavior for a StyleInfo object.
    FarPoint.Win.Spread.Appearance appr = new FarPoint.Win.Spread.Appearance();
    FarPoint.Win.Spread.StyleInfo si = new FarPoint.Win.Spread.StyleInfo();
    appr.BackColor = Color.Yellow;
    appr.DrawPrimaryButton = false;
    appr.DrawSecondaryButton = false;
    appr.Font = new Font("Comic Sans MS", 10);
    appr.ForeColor = Color.DarkBlue;
    appr.HorizontalAlignment = FarPoint.Win.Spread.CellHorizontalAlignment.Right;
    appr.VerticalAlignment = FarPoint.Win.Spread.CellVerticalAlignment.Bottom;
    fpSpread1.ActiveSheet.SetStyleInfo(0, 0, si);
    fpSpread1.ActiveSheet.Cells[0, 0].Text = "Apprearance Test";
    Dim appr As New FarPoint.Win.Spread.Appearance
    Dim si As New FarPoint.Win.Spread.StyleInfo
    appr.BackColor = Color.Yellow
    appr.DrawPrimaryButton = False
    appr.DrawSecondaryButton = False
    appr.Font = New Font("Comic Sans MS", 10)
    appr.ForeColor = Color.DarkBlue
    appr.HorizontalAlignment = FarPoint.Win.Spread.CellHorizontalAlignment.Right
    appr.VerticalAlignment = FarPoint.Win.Spread.CellVerticalAlignment.Bottom
    fpSpread1.ActiveSheet.SetStyleInfo(0, 0, si)
    fpSpread1.ActiveSheet.Cells(0, 0).Text = "Apprearance Test"
