Vertical Ruler

The vertical ruler is located along the left border of the document. It allows you to adjust top and bottom margins and change table row heights.




Adjust Page Margins

Position the cursor on the ruler at the current margin so it transforms into the double-headed vertical arrow. Drag it to increase or decrease the margin.

The SectionMargins.Top and SectionMargins.Bottom properties.

Use notation:

richEditControl1.Document.Sections[0].Margins.Top, richEditControl1.Document.Sections[0].Margins.Bottom

Adjust Table Row Height

Position the cursor on the ruler at the text boundaries, so that it transforms into the double-headed vertical arrow. Drag it to adjust the row height.


To hide the ruler to get more space for your document, set the RulerOptions.Visibility to RichEditScrollbarVisibility.Hidden using the following notation.

By default, the ruler shows the DocumentUnit.Document (1/300 of an inch) measurement units. To change the ruler measurements, specify the control's measurement unit using the RichEditControl.Unit property. When a document is loaded in the RichEditControl, you can set the measurement unit with the Document.Unit property. The document setting is in effect until another document is loaded or a new document is created.
