#325 – Specifying a Margin Value in Code

You can set the Margin property on a control so that it has some extra room around its edges, within its container.

You’ll typically set the values for Margin in XAML, but you can also set a Margin value in code.  The type of the Margin property is Thickness, which is a struct having fields for margins along the left, top, right and bottom of a control.

You can specify a value for Margin by creating a new instance of the Thickness structure.

            double left = 5.0;
            double top = 10.0;
            double right = 2.0;
            double bottom = 20.0;
            lblName.Margin = new Thickness(left, top, right, bottom);
