Inline and Floating Object Layout Dialog

In the Layout dialog invoked for the selected floating object, end-users can specify the position, text wrapping style, and distance, scale and rotation of the floating object (Shape). If the dialog is invoked for the inline pictures, the Position tab is disabled.

Expanded Appearance

The settings are combined in the following tabs:

  • Position

    Options in the Position tab enable end-users to specify the relative position of the floating object via the Alignment option, or the absolute position by specifying the distance in actual units of measurement. The absolute position means that the horizontal or vertical position of the shape is measured from the anchoring paragraph, the column that contains the anchoring paragraph, the margin, or the edge of the page.

    Note

    The Position tab is disabled for inline pictures.

  • Text Wrapping

    Text Wrapping allows end-users to define how text wraps around a shape and specifies the distance from text where applicable.

  • Size

    Options in the Size tab include the rotation degree editor, which enables an end-user to rotate an object to the specified degree, and a check box that allows the end-user to keep a shape's aspect ratio during resize.

Expanded Methods

End-users can invoke the Layout dialog by right-clicking a shape or inline picture and selecting the More layout Options... command in the context menu.

To invoke the Layout dialog programmatically, use the ShowFloatingObjectLayoutOptionsFormCommand command.

Before a dialog is shown, the RichEditControl.FloatingInlineObjectLayoutOptionsFormShowing event is raised.

Note

Set the Document.Unit property to specify units of measure to be used in the dialog.
