Member Function Documentation

§ create_params()

forms::create_params xtd::forms::label::create_params ( ) const
overrideprotectedvirtual

Gets the required creation parameters when the control handle is created.

Returns
A create_params that contains the required creation parameters when the handle to the control is created.
Remarks
The create_params property should not be overridden and used to adjust the properties of your derived control. Properties such as the create_params::caption, create_params::width, and create_params::height should be set by the corresponding properties in your control such as control::text, control::width and control::height. The create_params should only be extended when you are wrapping a standard Windows control class or to set styles not provided by the forms namespace.
Notes for inheritors
When overriding the create_params property in a derived class, use the base class's create_params property to extend the base implementation. Otherwise, you must provide all the implementation.

Reimplemented from xtd::forms::control.

§ measure_control()

drawing::size xtd::forms::label::measure_control ( ) const
overrideprotectedvirtual

Measure this control.

Returns
The drawing::size size of this control.
Remarks
This metod is not relevant for this class.

Reimplemented from xtd::forms::control.

§ text_align() [1/2]

virtual content_alignment xtd::forms::label::text_align ( ) const
inlinevirtual

Gets the alignment of the text on the button control.

Returns
One of the content_alignment values. The default is middle_center.

§ text_align() [2/2]

virtual label& xtd::forms::label::text_align ( content_alignment  text_align)
virtual

Gets the alignment of the text on the button control.

Parameters
text_alignOne of the content_alignment values. The default is middle_center.
