It creates and displays two bricks - the first brick has default settings, the second one has its text alignment modified.

ChangeAlignment

using DevExpress.XtraPrinting;
// ...

    VisualBrick visBrick;
    BrickGraphics brickGraph = printingSystem1.Graph;
    string s = "Developer Express Inc.";
    BrickStringFormat brickSFormat = new BrickStringFormat();

    // Start the report generation.
    printingSystem1.Begin();

    // Specify a page area.
    brickGraph.Modifier = BrickModifier.Detail;

    // Create a rectangle.
    RectangleF rect = new RectangleF(new PointF(0, 0), new SizeF(180, 50));
    // Add a brick to the report.
    visBrick = brickGraph.DrawString(s, Color.MidnightBlue, rect, BorderSide.All);

    // Change the text alignment within the brick
    brickSFormat = visBrick.Style.StringFormat.ChangeAlignment(StringAlignment.Far);
    brickSFormat = brickSFormat.ChangeLineAlignment(StringAlignment.Far);
    brickGraph.StringFormat = brickSFormat;

    // Create a second rectangle.
    RectangleF rect1 = new RectangleF(new PointF(0,50), new SizeF(180, 50));
    // Add the next brick to the report.
    visBrick = brickGraph.DrawString(s, Color.MidnightBlue, rect1, BorderSide.All);

    // Finish the report generation.
    printingSystem1.End();

    // Preview the report.
