Note:
For CommandButton controls, you can set the Alignment property without specifying an image for the Picture property. However, certain Alignment settings are visible only when you specify an image for the Picture property and set the PicturePosition property to a value other than the default. In addition, some Alignment settings are not visible unless the WordWrap property is set to True (.T.) and Caption text displays on multiple lines. When you do not specify an image for the Picture property, the PicturePosition setting does not affect the Alignment property.

Note:
For CheckBox and OptionButton controls, when Style is set to 0, the PicturePosition property affects the position of the check boxes or option buttons in the control. When you specify an image for the Picture property, the PicturePosition property can affect the Alignment property. For example, the default setting for PicturePosition results in a centered alignment regardless of the setting for Alignment. For more information, see Picture Property (Visual FoxPro) and PicturePosition Property.
