This page applies to WPF and Silverlight 2

Cc295267.alert_note(en-us,Expression.10).gifNote:

You can only complete this procedure while in Grid layout mode.

  1. In your Microsoft Expression Blend document, double-click the grid panel that contains the row or column for which you want to change the sizing option. A yellow highlight will appear around the grid panel, to indicate that it is now the active element.

  2. Select the row or column for which you want to change the sizing option, by clicking just to the side of the left blue ruler or just above the top blue ruler where the lock icon Cc295267.56fdad3b-cb94-41a2-8afb-3a2bbf4b2f1a(en-us,Expression.10).png is located, and then do one of the following:

    • To make the row or column remain a fixed size when the parent grid is resized, click the lock icon to lock it Cc295267.56fdad3b-cb94-41a2-8afb-3a2bbf4b2f1a(en-us,Expression.10).png. Notice that when you resize the grid, the locked row or column remains a fixed size. Also, under Layout in the Properties panel, notice that the Height or Width value is measured in pixels (or, device-independent units which are approximately 1/96 inch).

    • To make a row or column resize proportionally when the parent grid is resized, click the lock icon to unlock it Cc295267.1b4edaf6-b6a8-4498-80dc-949375fa610d(en-us,Expression.10).png. Notice that when you resize the grid, the unlocked row or column resizes proportionally. Also, under Layout in the Properties panel, notice that the Height or Width value is measured in star-sized proportions.

    • To make a row or column size automatically when the parent grid is resized, select Auto for Height or Width under Layout in the Properties panel. Notice that the lock icon changes to Auto sized Cc295267.aa9ec064-22f8-4b62-9eed-3f4772362d22(en-us,Expression.10).png.
