Examples

The following example shows how to set the vertical content alignment property on a control.

<Button Name="btn8" Height="50"
        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"
    End If
End Sub

Remarks

In addition to Top, Bottom, and Center, you can set the VerticalContentAlignment property to Stretch, which stretches the child element to fill the allocated layout space of the parent element. For more information, see Alignment, Margins, and Padding Overview.

This property only affects a control whose template uses the VerticalContentAlignment property as a parameter. On other controls, this property has no impact.
