This blog is part of my series Making Data Tell a Story With SSRS Properties.
The purpose of this property is to set the vertical text alignment of a text box or tablix cell.
To access the property, go to the text box and select VerticalAlign. The options are Default, Top, Middle, and Bottom.
Default – top.
Top – text will be placed at the top of the cell and go down.
Middle – text will be centered in the middle of the cell.
Bottom – text will be placed at the bottom of the cell and go up.
Example: I have a product inventory report. I want to display the text in different vertical alignments. By default, the VerticalAlign is set to Top.
I set VerticalAlignfor all text boxes to Middle. The longest lines of text will fill the boxes; other text will be centered vertically.
I set VerticalAlign for all text boxes to Bottom. All boxes line the text up at the bottom.
