NuGet Package: DevExpress.RichEdit.Core


PointF OffsetRelative { get; set; }

Property Value

Type Description

An object that defines the horizontal and vertical offsets (in percentage) relative to the specified elements. Valid values range from -10 (-1000%) to 10 (1000%).


Use the OffsetRelative property to specify a floating shape’s position (in percentage) relative to the document elements defined by the Shape.RelativeHorizontalPosition and Shape.RelativeVerticalPosition properties.


The OffsetRelative property is in effect when the Shape.HorizontalAlignment and Shape.VerticalAlignment properties are set to None.

The example below creates a rectangle and places it on the page as follows:

  • the horizontal offset is equal to 20% of the page width,

  • the vertical offset is equal to 10% of the page height.

Document document = wordProcessor.Document;
// Set the measurement unit to inches.
document.Unit = DevExpress.Office.DocumentUnit.Inch;
// Create a rectangle.
Shape rectangle = document.Shapes.InsertShape(document.Range.Start, ShapeGeometryPreset.Rectangle, new SizeF(2.5f, 1.5f));
// Specify the rectangle position on the page.
rectangle.RelativeHorizontalPosition = ShapeRelativeHorizontalPosition.Page;
rectangle.RelativeVerticalPosition = ShapeRelativeVerticalPosition.Page;
rectangle.OffsetRelative = new PointF(0.2f, 0.1f);
