Namespace:  System.Windows.Controls

XMLNS for XAML: http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml/presentation, http://schemas.microsoft.com/netfx/2007/xaml/presentation

public TextWrapping TextWrapping { get; set; }
<object TextWrapping="TextWrapping" .../>

Property Value

Type: System.Windows.TextWrapping
One of the TextWrapping values that indicates how the text box should wrap text. The default is TextWrapping.NoWrap.

Setting the TextWrapping attribute to Wrap causes entered text to wrap to a new line when the edge of the TextBox control is reached, automatically expanding the height of the TextBox control to include room for a new line, if necessary.

The following example demonstrates how to set the value of this property.

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