<object LastChildFill="bool" .../>

Property Value

Type: System.Boolean
true if the last child element stretches to fill the remaining space; otherwise false. The default value is true.

Identifier field

LastChildFillProperty

Metadata properties set to true

AffectsArrange

If you set the LastChildFill property to true, which is the default setting, the last child element of a DockPanel always fills the remaining space, regardless of any other dock value that you set on the last child element. To dock a child element in another direction, you must set the LastChildFill property to false and must also specify an explicit dock direction on the last child element.
