SnapPointsAlignment Enum


Defines constants that specify options for snap point alignment relative to an edge. Which edge depends on the orientation of the object where the alignment is applied.

This enumeration is used as a value by ScrollViewer.HorizontalSnapPointsAlignment and ScrollViewer.VerticalSnapPointsAlignment. It's also used as a parameter type for IScrollSnapPointsInfo.GetIrregularSnapPoints and IScrollSnapPointsInfo.GetRegularSnapPoints, and implementations of those methods on types, such as StackPanel.GetIrregularSnapPoints.

For a vertically oriented element, Near is the top and Far is the bottom. For a horizontally oriented element, Near is left and Far is right.
