Members

The TextWrapping enumeration has these members.

MemberValueDescription
NoWrap1

No line wrapping is performed.

Wrap2

Line breaking occurs if a line of text overflows beyond the available width of its container. Line breaking occurs even if the text logic can't determine any line break opportunity. For example, if a very long word is constrained in a fixed-width container that can't scroll, it will wrap at a point that might be in the middle of a word.

WrapWholeWords3

Introduced in Windows 8.1. Line-breaking occurs if the line overflows beyond the available block width. A line may overflow beyond the block width if the text logic can't determine a line break opportunity. For example, if a very long word is constrained in a fixed-width container that can't scroll, it will overflow the long word and continue the text after the long word on the next line. Not supported by all controls; see Remarks.

Remarks

TextBox and RichEditBox don't support the WrapWholeWords value for their TextWrapping properties. If you try to use WrapWholeWords as a value for TextBox.TextWrapping or RichEditBox.TextWrapping an invalid argument exception is thrown.
