Property Value

Type Description

An enumeration value that indicates the table’s horizontal position.

Available values:

Name Description

The exact position is specified by the Table.OffsetXRelative property.


The table is left aligned relative to its Table.RelativeHorizontalPosition.


The table is centered relative to its Table.RelativeHorizontalPosition.


The table is right aligned relative to its Table.RelativeHorizontalPosition.


The table is inside relative to the element specified by the Table.RelativeHorizontalPosition. Not currently supported.


The table is outside relative to the element specified by the Table.RelativeHorizontalPosition. Not currently supported.


The HorizontalAlignment property value is ignored for tables with the Table.TextWrappingType property set to TableTextWrappingType.None.

The HorizontalAlignment property defines the alignment relative to the element specified in the Table.RelativeHorizontalPosition property. If the HorizontalAlignment property is set to None, the Table.OffsetXRelative property specifies the table’s position.


The TableHorizontalAlignment.Inside and TableHorizontalAlignment.Outside values are ignored when the document is opened in the RichEditControl. You can set this property in code and save its value to a file for further processing in Microsoft Word or other word processing applications.

The code sample below shows how to specify the table’s horizontal alignment:

using DevExpress.XtraRichEdit;
using DevExpress.XtraRichEdit.API.Native;

using (RichEditDocumentServer wordProcessor = new RichEditDocumentServer())
  Document document = wordProcessor.Document;
  Table table = document.Tables[0];
  //Wrap text around the table
  table.TextWrappingType = TableTextWrappingType.Around;

  //Specify horizontal alignment:
  table.RelativeHorizontalPosition = TableRelativeHorizontalPosition.Margin;
  table.HorizontalAlignment = TableHorizontalAlignment.Center;
