Thetype exposes the following members.
|Auto||Gets an instance of that holds a value whose size is determined by the size properties of the content object.|
|GridUnitType||Gets the associated GridUnitType for the .|
|IsAbsolute||Gets a value that indicates whether the holds a value that is expressed in pixels.|
|IsAuto||Gets a value that indicates whether the holds a value whose size is determined by the size properties of the content object.|
|IsStar||Gets a value that indicates whether the holds a value that is expressed as a weighted proportion of available space.|
|Value||Gets a Double that represents the value of the .|
|Equals(GridLength)||Determines whether the specified is equal to the current .|
|Equals(Object)||Determines whether the specified object is equal to the current instance. (Overrides ValueType.Equals(Object).)|
|GetHashCode||Gets a hash code for the . (Overrides ValueType.GetHashCode().)|
|GetType||Gets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)|
|ToString||Returns a String representation of the . (Overrides ValueType.ToString().)|
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 . 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.
