Type Description

The distance in measurement units specified by the Document.Unit property.


The MarginTop setting is not in effect for shapes positioned behind text and in front of text. Use the Shape.TextWrapping property to change the text wrap type.

The example below demonstrates how to wrap text around a shape.

Wrap text around a rectangle

Document document = wordProcessor.Document;
// Set the measurement unit to inches.
document.Unit = DevExpress.Office.DocumentUnit.Inch;

// Create a rectangle with a folded corner.
Shape rectangle = document.Shapes.InsertShape(document.CreatePosition(100), ShapeGeometryPreset.FoldedCorner);
// Center the rectangle on the page.
rectangle.RelativeHorizontalPosition = ShapeRelativeHorizontalPosition.Page;
rectangle.HorizontalAlignment = ShapeHorizontalAlignment.Center;
rectangle.RelativeVerticalPosition = ShapeRelativeVerticalPosition.Page;
rectangle.VerticalAlignment = ShapeVerticalAlignment.Center;

// Wrap text around the rectangle.
rectangle.TextWrapping = TextWrappingType.Square;

// Set the distance between the rectangle and text.
rectangle.MarginTop = 0.1f;
rectangle.MarginBottom = 0.1f;
rectangle.MarginLeft = 0.2f;
rectangle.MarginRight = 0.2f;
