TextWrapping Enumeration

Specifies whether text wraps when it reaches the edge of the containing box

Namespace:  System.Windows
Assembly:  PresentationCore (in PresentationCore.dll)
[LocalizabilityAttribute(LocalizationCategory.None, Readability = Readability.Unreadable)]
public enum TextWrapping
<object property="enumerationMemberName" .../>
Member nameDescription
WrapWithOverflow Line-breaking occurs if the line overflows beyond the available block width. However, a line may overflow beyond the block width if the line breaking algorithm cannot determine a line break opportunity, as in the case of a very long word constrained in a fixed-width container with no scrolling allowed.
NoWrap No line wrapping is performed.
Wrap Line-breaking occurs if the line overflows beyond the available block width, even if the standard line breaking algorithm cannot determine any line break opportunity, as in the case of a very long word constrained in a fixed-width container with no scrolling allowed.

The following example demonstrates how to set the value of the TextWrapping property of a TextBox.

private void wrapOff(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e)
{
    myTextBox.TextWrapping = TextWrapping.NoWrap;
}
