An integer value specifying the default alignment settings of the controls displayed in layout groups.

Name Description
UseParentOptions

Alignment settings are determined by the group’s parent. The OptionsItemTextGroup.TextToControlDistance and OptionsItemTextGroup.AlignControlsWithHiddenText properties of the current group are ignored. In this mode, these settings are determined by the group’s parent.

For the root group, its parent is the LayoutControl itself (the LayoutControl’s alignment settings are specified by the LayoutControl.OptionsItemText property). For other groups their parents are upper-level groups (a group’s alignment settings are specified by the LayoutGroup.OptionsItemText property).

AlignLocal

Controls displayed within the current group are equally aligned independent of other groups.

AutoSize

The auto-size feature is applied to the layout items of the current group. The text regions of the layout items are automatically resized to the minimum width that allows the text to be displayed in its entirety.

CustomSize

Enables custom size mode, in which the size of the text regions of the group’s layout items must be specified manually via the BaseLayoutItem.TextSize property.

AlignWithChildren

Controls displayed within the current and nested groups are equally aligned independent of other groups.
