Read only properties !!! ???

Trying to use a Text Box control and create a wrap around it. I need to set the alignment property. BUT. On the initialize of the UserControl, if I set the alignment property in the code, it complains when I want to put the control on to a form with - Read Only property can not be set. ???
When using the ActiveX control wizard, it does not seem to map the property to the constituent control.
Is this a bug ? Or is there another way of doing this.
(I dont want to have to create 2 text boxes on the UserControl with each of them being aligned in a different way and when the user selects the Alignment property I would swap it to the text control that has been aligned in that fashion...)

You don't have any other choice. VB can't change this property at run time. the only way i know is to put two controls on the usercontol.

The only way is to create two text boxes. The alignment  property is read/write at the control’s authoring time, and not available at the control’s run time.

Alignment  property is an Ambient property read-only at the control’s run time.

Not a problem. An inherant feature.
