Aligning objects and making space Equal in Expression Blend

Sometimes you have a selection of Textboxes that you need to align and tidy up, here’s how you do it.

 

To align objects in Blend lasso the objects or hold down shift and click each individual object then right click Align > Left Edges .

There is no easy way I can find to equal the space between each object like you can do in Windows forms applications. But what you can do, with the objects selected, is right click then Group Into > StackPanel

You can then, with the objects selected, change the bottom margin property to some thing like 50 and it will create an equal margin between all of the selected objects.

That leaves you with the desired result, nicely aligned and evenly spaced textboxes.
