Content alignment is used to position content within a rectangular region at one of the nine available positions.


This example displays a TextBox with some text in it. Clicking on the button will cycle through the nine available content alignment positions.

Content Alignment Example
import "Turbine.UI";
import "Turbine.UI.Lotro";

-- Create a test window to display a status icon.
window = Turbine.UI.Lotro.Window();
window:SetPosition( 200, 200 );
window:SetSize( 400, 220 );
window:SetText( "Content Alignment Example" );
window:SetVisible( true );

-- Create a status icon and add it to the window.
local textbox = Turbine.UI.Lotro.TextBox();
textbox:SetParent( window );
textbox:SetMultiline( true );
textbox:SetPosition( 20, 40 );
textbox:SetSize( 360, 140 );
textbox:SetBackColor( Turbine.UI.Color( 1, 0.2, 0.2, 0.5 ) );
textbox:SetTextAlignment( Turbine.UI.ContentAlignment.TopLeft );
textbox:SetText( "The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog." );

local switchAlignmentButton = Turbine.UI.Lotro.Button();
switchAlignmentButton:SetParent( window );
switchAlignmentButton:SetPosition( 70, 185 );
switchAlignmentButton:SetSize( 300, 20 );
switchAlignmentButton:SetText( "Change Alignment" );

switchAlignmentButton.Click = function( sender, args )
-- Cycle through the content alignment on each click.
textbox:SetTextAlignment( ( textbox:GetTextAlignment() + 1 ) % 9 );
