Hello

I've created a hyperlink on my Visual Basic 2005 form using the linklabel class.  I was wondering how I can align the linklabel to the center of the form?

The linklabel width should be the same width as the form and the text within the linklabel should be centered.

Thanks
Private Sub Form1_Load(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles MyBase.Load
 

        Dim LinkLabel1 As New LinkLabel()

        LinkLabel1.Text = "VB Forums"

        LinkLabel1.Location = New Point(136, 40)

        LinkLabel1.Size = New Size(700, 70)

        LinkLabel1.BackColor = Color.Transparent

        LinkLabel1.Font = New Font("Arial", 24)

        LinkLabel1.DisabledLinkColor = System.Drawing.Color.White

        LinkLabel1.VisitedLinkColor = System.Drawing.Color.White

        LinkLabel1.LinkColor = System.Drawing.Color.White

        Me.Controls.Add(LinkLabel1)
 

        AddHandler LinkLabel1.LinkClicked, AddressOf LinkLabel1_LinkClicked
 

End Sub
 
 

    Private Sub LinkLabel1_LinkClicked(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.Windows.Forms.LinkLabelLinkClickedEventArgs)
 

System.Diagnostics.Process.Start("http://www.vbforums.com")
 

End Sub

Thanks for your help. I've added the below code and the link now appears to be aligned in the center. Is there anyway to change the height of the linklabel from TopCenter to 50 pixels from the top of the form?
LinkLabel1.Dock = DockStyle.Fill

LinkLabel1.TextAlign = ContentAlignment.TopCenter

yes, but you have to use a different approach:
Set the DockStyle to None
Resize manually the control to have the size you want, with the current form size.
Set Anchor property to Left,Top,Right & bottom
