TextBox.TextWrapping Property

Gets or sets how line breaking occurs if a line of text extends beyond the available width of the text box.

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

public TextWrapping TextWrapping { get; set; }
<TextBlock TextWrapping="Wrap"/>

Property Value

Type: System.Windows.TextWrapping
One of the TextWrapping values. The default is NoWrap.

Dependency property identifier field: TextWrappingProperty.

You should consider the height and width of the text box when you set the TextWrapping property. Any text that extends beyond the bounds of the text box will not be displayed.

The following code snippets show how you can use the TextWrapping property in XAML and code.


<StackPanel>
    <TextBox Margin="20,20,0,0" Text="A text box that demonstrates TextWrapping, TextAlignment, MaxLength, and AcceptsReturn" Width="300" Height="50" TextWrapping="Wrap" TextAlignment="Center" MaxLength="500" AcceptsReturn="True" />
    <TextBox Margin="20,20,0,0" Text="A text box that demonstrates HorizontalScrollBarVisibility and VerticalScrollBarVisibility" Width="300" Height="50" AcceptsReturn="True" HorizontalScrollBarVisibility="Visible" VerticalScrollBarVisibility="Visible" />
</StackPanel>



public Page()
{
    InitializeComponent();
    CreateControls();
}

private void CreateControls()
{
    //Create stack panel
    StackPanel MyStackPanel = new StackPanel();

    //Create the first text box
    TextBox MyTB1 = new TextBox();
    MyTB1.Width = 300;
    MyTB1.Height = 50;
    MyTB1.Text = "A text box that demonstrates TextWrapping, TextAlignment, MaxLength and AcceptsReturn";
    MyTB1.TextWrapping = TextWrapping.Wrap;
    MyTB1.TextAlignment = TextAlignment.Center;
    MyTB1.MaxLength = 500;
    MyTB1.AcceptsReturn = true;
    MyTB1.Margin = new Thickness(20, 20, 0, 0);

    //Create the second text box
    TextBox MyTB2 = new TextBox();
    MyTB2.Margin = new Thickness(20, 20, 0, 0);
    MyTB2.Text = "A text box that demonstrates HorizontalScrollBarVisibility and VerticalScrollBarVisibility";
    MyTB2.Width = 300;
    MyTB2.Height = 50;
    MyTB2.AcceptsReturn = true;
    MyTB2.HorizontalScrollBarVisibility = ScrollBarVisibility.Visible;
    MyTB2.VerticalScrollBarVisibility = ScrollBarVisibility.Visible;

    //Add the text boxes to the stack panel
    MyStackPanel.Children.Add(MyTB1);
    MyStackPanel.Children.Add(MyTB2);
    this.Content = MyStackPanel;
}
