Type Default Value Read Only Description
Double   0.0 No The current vertical positioning.




This property determines the vertical offset of blocks of text - used for bottom alignment, top alignment or middle alignment.

The offset is measured as a proportion of the distance from the top. A value of zero indicates top alignment, a value of one half indicates center aligned text and a value of one indicates bottom aligned text. Intermediate values can be used for intermediate offsets.

To horizontally align text, use the HPos property. To justify text, use the XTextStyle.Justification property.




The following code adds two blocks of text to a document. The first block is bottom-aligned, and the second is top-aligned. Before adding the text, we change the current rectangle and frame it so that you can see how the text is aligned.

Set theDoc = Server.CreateObject("ABCpdf12.Doc")
theDoc.FontSize = 96
theDoc.Rect.Magnify 1.0, 0.5
theDoc.Rect.Inset 40, 40
theDoc.AddText "Top aligned text..."
theDoc.Rect.Move 0, theDoc.Rect.Height + 80
theDoc.VPos = 1.0
theDoc.AddText "Bottom aligned text..."
theDoc.Save "c:\mypdfs\docvpos.pdf"
