WrapPanel::ItemWidth Property

 

Gets or sets a value that specifies the width of all items that are contained within a WrapPanel.

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

public:
[TypeConverterAttribute((LengthConverter^::typeid))]
property double ItemWidth {
	double get();
	void set(double value);
}

Property Value

Type: System::Double

A Double that represents the uniform width of all items that are contained within the WrapPanel. The default value is NaN.

If this property is not set (or if it is set to Auto in Extensible Application Markup Language (XAML) or to Double.NaN in code), the size of the layout partition is equal to the DesiredSize of the child element.

A child element of a WrapPanel may have its width property set explicitly. ItemWidth specifies the size of the layout partition that is reserved by the WrapPanel for the child element. As a result, ItemWidth takes precedence over an element's own width.

double

Double

String representation of a Double value equal to or greater than 0.0034 but equal to or less than 160000. An unqualified value is measured in device independent pixels. Strings need not explicitly include decimal points.

qualifiedDouble

A double value as described above, (excepting Auto) followed by one of the following unit specifiers: px, in, cm, pt.

px (default) is device-independent units (1/96th inch per unit)

in is inches; 1in==96px

cm is centimeters; 1cm==(96/2.54) px

pt is points; 1pt==(96/72) px

Auto

Causes the line height is determined automatically from the current font characteristics. Equivalent to a property value of NaN.

The following example demonstrates how to set the ItemWidth property in Extensible Application Markup Language (XAML).

<Page xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml/presentation" WindowTitle="WrapPanel Properties Sample">
  <Border HorizontalAlignment="Left" VerticalAlignment="Top" BorderBrush="Black" BorderThickness="2">
        <WrapPanel Orientation="Horizontal" Background="Azure" ItemWidth="25" ItemHeight="25" Height="200" Width="200">
            <Button Width="200">Button 1</Button>
            <Button>Button 2</Button>
            <Button>Button 3</Button>
        </WrapPanel>
  </Border>    
</Page>

The following example demonstrates how to set the ItemWidth property by using code.


// Create the application's main window
mainWindow = gcnew System::Windows::Window();
mainWindow->Title = "WrapPanel Sample";


// Instantiate a new WrapPanel and set properties
myWrapPanel = gcnew WrapPanel();
myWrapPanel->Background = Brushes::Azure;
myWrapPanel->Orientation = Orientation::Horizontal;
myWrapPanel->ItemHeight = 25;

myWrapPanel->ItemWidth = 75;
myWrapPanel->Width = 150;
myWrapPanel->HorizontalAlignment = HorizontalAlignment::Left;
myWrapPanel->VerticalAlignment = VerticalAlignment::Top;

// Define 3 button elements. Each button is sized at width of 75, so the third button wraps to the next line.
btn1 = gcnew Button();
btn1->Content = "Button 1";
btn2 = gcnew Button();
btn2->Content = "Button 2";
btn3 = gcnew Button();
btn3->Content = "Button 3";

// Add the buttons to the parent WrapPanel using the Children.Add method.
myWrapPanel->Children->Add(btn1);
myWrapPanel->Children->Add(btn2);
myWrapPanel->Children->Add(btn3);

// Add the WrapPanel to the MainWindow as Content
mainWindow->Content = myWrapPanel;
mainWindow->Show();

<Page xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml/presentation" WindowTitle="WrapPanel Sample">
  <Border HorizontalAlignment="Left" VerticalAlignment="Top" BorderBrush="Black" BorderThickness="2">
        <WrapPanel Background="LightBlue" Width="200" Height="100">
            <Button Width="200">Button 1</Button>
            <Button>Button 2</Button>
            <Button>Button 3</Button>
            <Button>Button 4</Button>
        </WrapPanel>
  </Border>
