TXTextControl.InputFormat.TopDistance Property

Gets or sets a top paragraph distance, in twips, at the current input position. If text is selected, the property specifies the top distance of the whole selected text.

Syntax

[C#]
public int? TopDistance { get; set; }
[Visual Basic]
Public Property TopDistance() As Nullable(Of Integer)

Remarks

The property returns null when the text selection contains multiple paragraphs with different top distances.

The WPF.MeasureConverter can be used to convert the property value to another measuring unit.

Example

The following XAML example binds the TopDistance property to a text box using the WPF.MeasureConverter class. The value of the top distance is converted to centimeter.

…
xmlns:tx="clr-namespace:TXTextControl.WPF;assembly=TXTextControl.WPF"
…
<Window.Resources>
    <tx:MeasureConverter Unit="Centimeter" x:Key="twipsConv" />
</Window.Resources>
…
<TextBox 
    Text="{Binding
        ElementName=textControl1,
        Path=InputFormat.TopDistance,
        Converter={StaticResource twipsConv},
        Mode=TwoWay}" />
