PictureAlignment Property [Access 2003 VBA Language Reference]
You can use the PictureAlignment property to specify where a background picture will appear in an image control or on a form or report. Read/write Byte.
expression Required. An expression that returns one of the objects in the Applies To list.
The PictureAlignment property uses the following settings.
|Top Left||0||The picture is displayed in the top-left corner of the image control, Form window, or page of a report.|
|Top Right||1||The picture is displayed in the top-right corner of the image control, Form window, or page of a report.|
|Center||2||(Default) The picture is centered in the image control, Form window, or page of a report.|
|Bottom Left||3||The picture is displayed in the bottom-left corner of the image control, Form window, or page of a report.|
|Bottom Right||4||The picture is displayed in the bottom-right corner of the image control, Form window, or page of a report.|
|Form Center||5||(Forms only) The form's picture is centered horizontally in relation to the width of the form and vertically in relation to the height the entire form.|
You can also set the default for this property by using a control's default control style or the DefaultControl property in Visual Basic.
This property can be set in any view.
The Form Center setting aligns a form's picture in the center of the form itself. All other PictureAlignment property settings align a form's picture in relation to the Form window. If you want to make sure that a form's picture is displayed only on the form or tiled across only the form, set the PictureAlignment property to Form Center.
For reports, the picture appears relative to a full page and not in relation to the size of the actual report. If your report is less than a full page and you want a picture to appear at a location not available through the PictureAlignment property settings, use an image control instead.
When you set the PictureTiling property to Yes, tiling of the picture will begin from the PictureAlignment property setting.
The following example displays the picture "Logo.gif" in the top left corner of the "Purchase Order" report.
With Reports("Purchase Order") .Picture = "C:\Picture Files\Logo.gif" .PictureAlignment = 0 End With
