float OffsetXRelative { get; set; }

Property Value

Type Description

The offset (in percentage) relative to the specified element. Valid values range from -10 (-1000%) to 10 (1000%).


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

The Shape.OffsetRelative property specifies both the horizontal and vertical relative positions.


The OffsetRelative 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 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.OffsetXRelative = 0.2f;
rectangle.RelativeVerticalPosition = ShapeRelativeVerticalPosition.Page;
rectangle.OffsetYRelative = 0.1f;
