Enabling grid lines creates dotted lines around all the elements within a Grid. Only dotted lines are available because this property is intended as a design tool to debug layout problems and is not intended for use in production quality code. If you want lines inside a Grid, style the elements within the Grid to have borders.

The following example shows how to create and use an instance of Grid by using either Extensible Application Markup Language (XAML) or code. This example uses three ColumnDefinition objects and three RowDefinition objects to create a grid that has nine cells, such as in a worksheet. Each cell contains a TextBlock element that represents data, and the top row contains a TextBlock with the ColumnSpan property applied. To show the boundaries of each cell, the ShowGridLines property is enabled.

No code example is currently available or this language may not be supported.
