PicturePosition Property

JavaScript Editor js editor     Web development 



Main Page

Specifies the location of a picture relative to its caption. Read/write at run time.

The picture and caption, as a unit, appear centered on the control. If no caption exists, the picture is located relative to the center of the control. The PicturePosition property is affected by the Picture, DownPicture, and DisabledPicture properties. For more information, see Picture Property, DownPicture Property, and DisabledPicture Property.

Note:
To apply PicturePosition, you must specify an image for the Picture property. The size of the image is fixed. If you want to stretch, resize, or crop the image, you must use an Image control. Animated .gif files are not supported. For more information, see Image Control.

Tip:
To apply this setting, the Style property of the control must be set to 1 (Graphical). Use this setting when you want to provide a hotkey without displaying text on the control. For more information, see Style Property.

Remarks

Applies To: CommandButton Control | OptionButton Control | CheckBox Control

For CommandButton controls, Visual FoxPro disregards PicturePosition if Style is set to 1 (Invisible).

The WordWrap property and the AutoSize property are supported with PicturePosition. For more information, see WordWrap Property and AutoSize Property.

The SpecialEffect and VisualEffect properties affect the outer border but do not affect PicturePosition. For more information, see SpecialEffect Property and VisualEffect Property.

Versions earlier than Visual FoxPro 8.0 use a positioning algorithm that differs slightly from the standard 0 – 12 settings. The image always remains centered; however, the text remains relative to the bottom of the image. When PicturePosition is set to a value of 7, similar behavior occurs. However, as the button size is reduced, the text is cropped instead of shifted towards the top of the button. Setting PicturePosition to a value of 13 corresponds with behavior in versions prior to Visual FoxPro 8.0.
