- or -
<object Width="qualifiedDouble"/>
- or -
<object Width="Auto"/>



A string representation of a Double value equal to or greater than 0.0 but smaller than PositiveInfinity. An unqualified value is measured in device-independent units (1/96th inch per unit). Strings need not explicitly include decimal points.


A double value as described above, (except 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


Causes the width to be determined automatically. Equivalent to a property value of NaN.
