Properties and methods Description

Alignment Property

Text horizontal alignment specified using values indicated by GDIPLUS_STRINGALIGNMENT_* constants.

Default: GDIPLUS_STRINGALIGNMENT_Near.

Remarks: In a left-to-right reading order environment, GDIPLUS_STRINGALIGNMENT_Near is equivalent to "left alignment," and GDIPLUS_STRINGALIGNMENT_Far is equivalent to "right alignment."

Clone Method

Clones a StringFormat object.

Syntax: ? THIS.Clone(toGpStringFormat)

Return Values: Logical, representing success or failure.

Parameters:В 

toGpStringFormat, required, the gpStringFormat-based object to clone.

Create Method

Creates a StringFormat object with optional flags and language information.

Syntax: THIS.Create([tnFlags[, tnLangID]])

Return Values: Logical, representing success or failure.

Parameters:В 

tnFlags, optional, initial value for the FormatFlags property.

tnLangID, optional, an integer language identifier.

FormatFlags Property

String formatting flags specified using a combination of bit values, using values defined by GDIPLUS_STRINGFORMATFLAGS_* constants.

Default: Empty.

GetGenericDefault Method

Constructs a StringFormat object equivalent to .NET's System.Drawing.StringFormat.GenericDefault.

Syntax: THIS.GetGenericDefault(tlMakeClone)

Return Values: Logical, representing success or failure.

Remarks: Upon successful return from this method the object represents a system standard string format, and all properties become read-only.

GetGenericTypographic Method

Constructs a StringFormat object with Generic Typographic properties set as they would be by .NET's System.Drawing.StringFormat. GenericTypographic.

Syntax: THIS.GetGenericTypographic(tlMakeClone)

Return Values: Logical, representing success or failure.

Remarks: Upon successful return from this method the object represents a system standard string format, and all properties become read-only.

HotkeyPrefix Property

HotkeyPrefix setting with values indicated by GDIPLUS_HOTKEYPREFIX_* constants.

Init Method

Constructs a StringFormat object during initialization if passed appropriate arguments.

Syntax: CREATEOBJECT("gpStringFormat" [, tnFlags[, tnLangID]])

Return Values: Logical, representing success or failure. If the method fails, the object does not instantiate.

Parameters:В 

tnFlags, optional, initial value for the FormatFlags property.

tnLangID, optional, an integer language identifier.

LineAlignment Property

Text line vertical alignment specified using values indicated by GDIPLUS_STRINGALIGNMENT_* constants.

Default: GDIPLUS_STRINGALIGNMENT_Near.

Remarks: In a top-to-bottom reading order environment, GDIPLUS_STRINGALIGNMENT_Near is equivalent to "top alignment," and GDIPLUS_STRINGALIGNMENT_Far is equivalent to "bottom alignment."

Trimming Property

Flags that specify how text is trimmed when it overflows the layout rectangle, using values indicated by GDIPLUS_STRINGTRIMMING_* constants.

Default: GDIPLUS_STRINGTRIMMING_None.
