Common properties



Align - Determines how the button aligns within its container (parent control).

When Align is set to alBottom, alLeft, alRight or alTop, the button is align to the bottom, left, right or top of a form or panel and have it remain there even if the size of the form, panel or component that contains the button changes. When the parent is resized, an aligned button also resizes so that it continues to span the top, bottom, left, or right edge of the parent.

When Align is set to alNone, the button remains where it is positioned on a form or panel. Actually, alNone is the default value of Align.

When Align is set to alClient, the button fills the entire client area.

Note: Any number of buttons within a single parent can have the same Align value, in which case they stack up along the edge of the parent. The buttons stack up in z-order. To adjust the order in which the buttons stack up, drag the buttons into their desired positions.
