LayoutControl
.OptionsItemText.AlignControlsWithHiddenText

Remarks

By default, the AlignControlsWithHiddenText property is set to false. So controls with hidden text are not aligned when the control horizontal alignment is enabled. Otherwise, they are aligned along with other controls.

The following image illustrates how the AlignControlsWithHiddenText property works:

AlignControlsWithHiddenText

In this image, the text of the layout item which displays the check box is hidden. The "Is Customer" text is drawn by the CheckBox control, not by the layout item.

Each group can override the LayoutControl's AlignControlsWithHiddenText property setting. To do this, set the group's OptionsItemTextGroup.TextAlignMode property to TextAlignModeGroup.AlignLocal and set the group's OptionsItemTextGroup.AlignControlsWithHiddenText property to the required value.
