<object IsHyphenationEnabled="bool" .../>

Property Value

Type: System.Boolean
true to indicate that automatic breaking and hyphenation of words is enabled; otherwise, false. The default is false.

The automatic word hyphenation feature enables a TextBlock to automatically break and hyphenate words, based on current layout conditions. This enables long words to begin on one line and continue on this next, and tends to achieve a more even distribution of white space in justified text. Words are broken and hyphenated according to standard grammar rules.
