WrapPanel Class

Positions child elements in sequential position from left to right, breaking content to the next line at the edge of the containing box. Subsequent ordering happens sequentially from top to bottom or from right to left, depending on the value of the Orientation property.

Content Model: WrapPanel enforces a strong content model for child content. See the Children property for additional information about the Panel content model.

All child elements of a WrapPanel receive the layout partition size of ItemWidth multiplied by ItemHeight.

The following example demonstrates how to create a WrapPanel in code and Extensible Application Markup Language (XAML).

WindowTitle = "WrapPanel Sample"

' Instantiate a new WrapPanel and set properties
Dim myWrapPanel As New WrapPanel()
myWrapPanel.Background = Brushes.Azure
myWrapPanel.Orientation = Orientation.Horizontal
myWrapPanel.ItemHeight = 25

myWrapPanel.ItemWidth = 75
myWrapPanel.Width = 150
myWrapPanel.HorizontalAlignment = Windows.HorizontalAlignment.Left
myWrapPanel.VerticalAlignment = Windows.VerticalAlignment.Top

' Define 3 button elements. Each button is sized at width of 75, so the third button wraps to the next line.
Dim btn1 As New Button()
btn1.Content = "Button 1"
Dim btn2 As New Button()
btn2.Content = "Button 2"
Dim btn3 As New Button()
btn3.Content = "Button 3"

' Add the buttons to the parent WrapPanel using the Children.Add method.

' Add the WrapPanel to the Page as Content
Me.Content = myWrapPanel

<Page xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml/presentation" WindowTitle="WrapPanel Sample">
  <Border HorizontalAlignment="Left" VerticalAlignment="Top" BorderBrush="Black" BorderThickness="2">
        <WrapPanel Background="LightBlue" Width="200" Height="100">
            <Button Width="200">Button 1</Button>
            <Button>Button 2</Button>
            <Button>Button 3</Button>
            <Button>Button 4</Button>
