Use the BaseLayoutItem.Text property to set the layout item caption, and the TextLocation property to specify its position. Each layout item type interprets the TextLocation property values differently.

  • LayoutControlItem items place their caption blocks relative to controls hosted inside these items.

  • LayoutControlGroup items align their caption blocks along their sides.

  • TabbedControlGroup items use the TextLocation property to align tab headers along group sides.

The Locations.Default value is equal to Locations.Left if the Right-to-Left Layout mode is off, and Locations.Right otherwise.
