RowDefinition Class

Defines row-specific properties that apply to Grid elements.

Namespace:  System.Windows.Controls
Assembly:  PresentationFramework (in PresentationFramework.dll)
XMLNS for XAML: http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml/presentation, http://schemas.microsoft.com/netfx/2007/xaml/presentation

public ref class RowDefinition : public DefinitionBase
<RowDefinition .../>

You must set a RowDefinition for each row in a Grid. When you set a row-specific RowDefinition, you assign unique sizing properties to each row.

To set a group of RowDefinition elements by using code, add the RowDefinition to a RowDefinitionCollection.

The RowDefinition class exposes only height properties. To set width properties in a Grid, create an instance of ColumnDefinition.

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 ColumnDefinitions and three RowDefinitions 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.

How to: Manipulate Columns and Rows by Using ColumnDefinitionsCollections and RowDefinitionsCollections This example shows how to use the methods in the ColumnDefinitionCollection and RowDefinitionCollection classes to perform actions like adding, clearing, or counting the contents of rows or columns. For example, you can Add, Clear, or Count the items that are included in a ColumnDefinition or RowDefinition. To view the complete sample, see Row and Column Collections Sample.
How to: Create and Use a GridLengthConverter Object The following example shows how to create and use an instance of GridLengthConverter. The example defines a custom method called changeCol, which passes the ListBoxItem to a GridLengthConverter that converts the Content of a ListBoxItem to an instance of GridLength. The converted value is then passed back as the value of the Width property of the ColumnDefinition element.

Any public static (Shared in Visual Basic) members of this type are thread safe. Any instance members are not guaranteed to be thread safe.
