RowDefinition.Height Property

Gets the calculated height of a RowDefinition element, or sets the GridLength value of a row that is defined by the RowDefinition.

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 GridLength Height { get; set; }
<object Height="GridLength" .../>

Property Value

Type: System.Windows.GridLength
The GridLength that represents the height of the row. The default value is 1.0.

Identifier field

HeightProperty

Metadata properties set to true

None

The default GridUnitType is Star.

When you use these values in the same code example, the MinHeight value takes precedence over the MaxHeight value, which in turn takes precedence over the Height value.

When you add or remove rows or columns, the ActualWidth for all ColumnDefinition elements and the ActualHeight of all RowDefinition elements becomes zero until Measure is called.

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.

The example also defines a second custom method, called changeColVal. This custom method converts the Value of a Slider to a String and then passes that value back to the ColumnDefinition as the Width of the element.

Note that a separate Extensible Application Markup Language (XAML) file defines the contents of a ListBoxItem.

        private void changeColVal(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e) 
		{
            txt1.Text = "Current Grid Column is " + hs1.Value.ToString();
        }

        private void changeCol(object sender, SelectionChangedEventArgs args)
        {
            ListBoxItem li = ((sender as ListBox).SelectedItem as ListBoxItem);
            GridLengthConverter myGridLengthConverter = new GridLengthConverter();
            if (hs1.Value == 0)
            {
                GridLength gl1 = (GridLength)myGridLengthConverter.ConvertFromString(li.Content.ToString());
                col1.Width = gl1;
            }
            else if (hs1.Value == 1)
            {
                GridLength gl2 = (GridLength)myGridLengthConverter.ConvertFromString(li.Content.ToString());
                col2.Width = gl2;
            }
            else if (hs1.Value == 2)
            {
                GridLength gl3 = (GridLength)myGridLengthConverter.ConvertFromString(li.Content.ToString());
                col3.Width = gl3;
            }
        }
