Assembly: DevExpress.RichEdit.v23.2.Core.dll

NuGet Packages: DevExpress.RichEdit.Core, DevExpress.Win.Navigation


TableVerticalAlignment VerticalAlignment { get; set; }

Property Value

Type Description

An enumeration value that indicates the table’s vertical alignment.

Available values:

Name Description

The Table.OffsetYRelative property specifies the exact position.


The table is top aligned relative to its Table.RelativeVerticalPosition.


The table is centered relative to its Table.RelativeVerticalPosition.


The table is aligned to the bottom relative to its Table.RelativeVerticalPosition.


The table is inside relative to its Table.RelativeVerticalPosition.


The table is outside relative to its Table.RelativeVerticalPosition.


This property is in effect for tables with Table.TextWrappingType set to TableTextWrappingType.Around.

The VerticalAlignment property defines the alignment relative to the element specified in Table.RelativeVerticalPosition property. If the VerticalAlignment property is set to None, the Table.OffsetYRelative property specifies the table’s position.

The VerticalAlignment property value is ignored when the Table.RelativeVerticalPosition property is set to Paragraph. Use the Table.OffsetYRelative property instead.


The TableVerticalAlignment.Inside and TableVerticalAlignment.Outside values are ignored when the document is opened in the RichEditControl. However, 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 vertical alignment:

using DevExpress.XtraRichEdit;
using DevExpress.XtraRichEdit.API.Native;
using DevExpress.Office.Utils;

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

  //Specify vertical alignment:
  table.RelativeVerticalPosition = TableRelativeVerticalPosition.Paragraph;
  table.VerticalAlignment = TableVerticalAlignment.None;
  table.OffsetYRelative = Units.InchesToDocumentsF(2f);
