Create a Custom Content-Wrapping Panel Sample
This sample shows how to override the default layout behavior of the Panel element and create custom layout elements that are derived from Panel. This sample defines an element called CustomPanel, which flows content from left to right, until it reaches the edge of its container. After the edge is reached, content flows to a new line.
This custom element extends the Panel element and shows how to build custom layouts in Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF).
This sample demonstrates a specific feature of the Windows Presentation Foundation and, consequently, does not follow application development best practices. For comprehensive coverage of Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF) and Microsoft .NET Framework application development best practices, refer to the following as appropriate:

To build the sample from the build environment command window, go to the source directory of the sample. At the command prompt, type MSBUILD.
To build the sample in Microsoft Visual Studio, load the sample solution or project file and then press CTRL+SHIFT+B.
