#330 – HorizontalContentAlignment and VerticalContentAlignment

Recall that the HorizontalAlignment and VerticalAlignment properties specify how child controls should be located and sized within their parent container.

The HorizontalContentAlignment and VerticalContentAlignment properties are similar, but specify how a control’s content should be aligned, within the interior of the control.

Below is an example of some non-default values for HorizontalContentAlignment.

    <StackPanel>
        <Label Content="Buttons:" FontWeight="Bold"/>
        <Button Content="Center (Default)"/>
        <Button Content="Left" HorizontalContentAlignment="Left"/>
        <Button Content="Right" HorizontalContentAlignment="Right" />

        <Label Content="Labels:" FontWeight="Bold" Margin="0,20,0,0"/>
        <Label Content="Left (Default)" Background="Thistle"/>
        <Label Content="Center" HorizontalContentAlignment="Center" Background="Goldenrod"/>
        <Label Content="Right" HorizontalContentAlignment="Right" Background="PaleGreen"/>
    </StackPanel>
