XAML Values

double

Double

A string representation of a Double value. This value is interpreted as a device-independent unit (1/96th inch) measurement. Strings need not explicitly include decimal points. For example, you can specify a value of 1.

The same Double range restrictions as mentioned in the Property Value section apply here.

qualifiedDouble

A double value that is followed by one of these unit declaration strings: px, in, cm, pt.

px (default) is device-independent units (1/96th inch per unit)

in is inches; 1in==96px

cm is centimeters; 1cm==(96/2.54) px

pt is points; 1pt==(96/72) px

Auto

An automatic line height determination. If you programmatically set the Auto value, its value corresponds to Double::NaN.

Property Value

Type: System::Double
A double that specifies the height of each line box. This value must be equal to or greater than 0.0034 and equal to or less then 160000. A value of Double::NaN (equivalent to an attribute value of Auto) causes the line height to be determined automatically from the current font characteristics. The default is Double::NaN.

Changing this value does not change the height of the associated text; instead, it changes the box that contains it. To change the size of the text, use the FontSize property.
