Vertical alignment determines how the text is positioned relative to the borders of the control. This allows you to center the content of an Edit control in relation to the borders of the input area.
There are three types of alignment:
  • Align top
    Top-aligned text
  • Align middle
    Middle-aligned text
  • Align bottom
    Bottom-aligned text
The VerticalAlignment property gets and changes the vertical alignment of a control.
The initial alignment is defined in the control description.
Example
// If the control is aligned to top, align it at bottom
IF STC_Static.VerticalAlignment = vaTop THEN
STC_Static.VerticalAlignment = vaBottom
END
