Property Value

Type: System.String

A String that identifies a shared-size group.

Columns and rows that participate in size-sharing do not respect Star sizing. In the size-sharing scenario, Star sizing is treated as Auto.

Grid size-sharing does not work if you set IsSharedSizeScope to true within a resource template and you define SharedSizeGroup as outside that template.

The SharedSizeGroup property value must satisfy the following rules:

  • Must not be empty.

  • Must only consist of letters, digits, and underscore characters.

  • Must not start with a numeric value.
