Updated: July 2009

Namespace:  System.Windows.Controls
Assembly:  PresentationFramework (in PresentationFramework.dll)

public double VerticalOffset { get; }
You cannot set this property in XAML.

Property Value

Type: System.Double
A Double that represents the vertical offset of the scrolled content. The default is 0.0.

Identifier field


Metadata properties set to true


A positive VerticalOffset value corresponds to the content being offset to the top.

Valid values are between zero and the ExtentHeight minus the ViewportHeight.

If CanContentScroll is true, the values of the ExtentHeight, ScrollableHeight, ViewportHeight, and VerticalOffset properties are number of items. If CanContentScroll is false, the values of these properties are Device Independent Pixels.

Beginning in the .NET Framework version 3.5 SP1, when IsDeferredScrollingEnabled is true, VerticalOffset continues to change as the user drags the Thumb, but the content view does not change until the Thumb is released. In this case, ContentVerticalOffset represents the visible content offset and VerticalOffset represents the content offset based on the Thumb position.
