public enum SizeConstraintsType


Name Description

Default size constraints are applied to the layout item and its control. The default size constraints are determined automatically depending upon the type of its control.


This mode is designed to support horizontal alignment of the controls that implement the automatic sizing feature, when they are displayed within a LayoutControl. A layout item’s maximum and minimum sizes are determined automatically. To custom align a control, set its AutoSizeInLayoutControl property to true and specify the control’s alignment via the LayoutControlItem.ContentHorzAlignment property. See Size and Alignment to learn more.


A layout item’s size can be changed within the range which is specified by the LayoutControlItem.MinSize and LayoutControlItem.MaxSize properties.
