TRVBoxProperties.VerticalAnchorAnchor

Top  Previous  Next

Specifies a vertical anchor area for a floating box.

type
  TRVVerticalAnchor = (rvvanLine, rvvanParagraph, rvvanPage,

    rvvanMainTextArea, rvvanTopMargin, rvvanBottomMargin);
property VerticalAnchor: TRVVerticalAnchor;

A text box is positioned vertically relative to the area specified in this property.

It is important to understand that each area has a height; for example, when printing using TRVPrint, a top margin starts from the page's top edge and ends at Margins.Top.

If RelativeToCell=True, and a sidenote (or a text box item) is inserted in a table cell, then this property defines an area of this cell instead of a page.

Differences from Microsoft Word*:

In MS Word, a "line" anchor does not have a height. MS Word uses only a top line coordinate, so a center and a bottom alignments relative to a line are different in TRichView and MS Word.

MS Word does not support alignment relative to a paragraph (so TRichView exports it as an alignment to a line).

MS Word does not support a relative (percent) alignment relative to a line or a paragraph (so TRichView exports them as absolute positions with zero offsets).

MS Word does not implement all options for vertical positioning relative to a cell:

absolute positions for all options (except for a line and a paragraph) are calculated relative to the cell area minus cellpadding (i.e. top of cell + top cell padding).

any alignment or percent position moves the box exactly to the cell area minus cellpadding (i.e. top of cell + top cell padding).
