Definition

Gets or sets the horizontal scroll position.

public:
 property double HorizontalOffset { double get(); };
public double HorizontalOffset { get; }
member this.HorizontalOffset : double
Public ReadOnly Property HorizontalOffset As Double

Property Value

A floating-point value that specifies the horizontal scroll position, in device-independent units (1/96th inch per unit).

Setting this property causes the text editing control to scroll to the specified horizontal offset. Reading this property returns the current horizontal offset.

The value of this property is 0.0 if the text editing control is not configured to support scrolling.

This property has no default value.

Exceptions

An attempt is made to set this property to a negative value.

Examples

The following example demonstrates how to read the value of the HorizontalOffset property.

private void initValues(object sender, EventArgs e)
{
    myTB1.Text= "ExtentHeight is currently " + myTextBox.ExtentHeight.ToString();
    myTB2.Text= "ExtentWidth is currently " + myTextBox.ExtentWidth.ToString();
    myTB3.Text= "HorizontalOffset is currently " + myTextBox.HorizontalOffset.ToString();
    myTB4.Text= "VerticalOffset is currently " + myTextBox.VerticalOffset.ToString();
    myTB5.Text = "ViewportHeight is currently " + myTextBox.ViewportHeight.ToString();
    myTB6.Text = "ViewportWidth is currently " + myTextBox.ViewportWidth.ToString();
    radiobtn1.IsChecked = true;
}
Private Sub initValues(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As EventArgs)
    myTB1.Text = "ExtentHeight is currently " + myTextBox.ExtentHeight.ToString()
    myTB2.Text = "ExtentWidth is currently " + myTextBox.ExtentWidth.ToString()
    myTB3.Text = "HorizontalOffset is currently " + myTextBox.HorizontalOffset.ToString()
    myTB4.Text = "VerticalOffset is currently " + myTextBox.VerticalOffset.ToString()
    myTB5.Text = "ViewportHeight is currently " + myTextBox.ViewportHeight.ToString()
    myTB6.Text = "ViewportWidth is currently " + myTextBox.ViewportWidth.ToString()
    radiobtn1.IsChecked = True

Remarks

The horizontal offset is measured from the right of the visible text area if you are working in right-to-left mode; otherwise, it is measured from the left.
