Type Default Value Read Only Static Description
Double 0 No No The text vertical alignment.

This property reflects the vertical alignment of text within its rectangle. VAlign specifies the text rectangle vertical alignment within the Canvas, whilst TextVAlign specified the text alignment within its rectangle, if one has been set via the Canvas DrawText parameters.

You can specify a value ranging from zero to one:

  • 0 corresponds to top
  • 0.5 corresponds to middle
  • 1 corresponds to bottom.

If you do not specify a rectangle for the text, then this property will position the text in the Canvas, because when no rectangle is specified the entire Canvas rectangle is used. VAlign will have no effect in this case.
