X-Size Adjustment (X-Size Adjustment)

The X-Size Adjustment property specifies how the adjustment to the X-Size is to be made.

In the Properties view, this property is the X-Size Adjustment property in the Geometry category.

A value of shrinktoChildren shrinks the X-Size as much as possible without clipping any of the children. A value of expandToParent causes the box to stretch as much as possible without intersecting the borders of a parent or sibling.

For objects that draw output with a defined size (Word Boxes, BarCode Boxes, Image Boxes where the tile property is set to FALSE), the value shrinkToChildren does not shrink the object below this size even if all children are smaller or there are no children. Self-placing children are not considered.

Type: Enum. Choices are shrinkToChildren, expandToParent.
