Use the following properties to position a floating shape on the page:

The Shape.Offset property specifies both the horizontal and vertical positions.


The Offset properties are 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 absolute horizontal position is two inches to the right of the page;

  • the absolute vertical position is one inch below the page.

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.OffsetX = 2;
rectangle.RelativeVerticalPosition = ShapeRelativeVerticalPosition.Page;
rectangle.OffsetY = 1;
