FlowDocument::PageWidth Property


Gets or sets the preferred width for pages in a FlowDocument.

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

property double PageWidth {
	double get();
	void set(double value);

Property Value

Type: System::Double

The preferred width, in device independent pixels, for pages in the FlowDocument. A value of Double::NaN (equivalent to an attribute value of "Auto") causes the page width to be determined automatically. The default is Double::NaN.

If viewed on a continuum, the MinPageWidth property takes precedence over the MaxPageWidth property, which in turn takes precedence over the PageWidth property. If all three properties are set on a given page, this is the order in which the properties are evaluated.

<object PageWidth="double"/>
- or -
<object PageWidth="qualifiedDouble"/>
- or -
<object PageWidth="Auto"/>



String representation of a Double value equal to or greater than 0.0 but smaller than Double::PositiveInfinity. An unqualified value is measured in device independent pixels. Strings need not explicitly include decimal points.


A double value as described above, 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 page width to be determined automatically. Equivalent to a property value of Double::NaN.

The following example shows how to set the PageWidth attribute of a FlowDocument element.

    <Paragraph Background="BlanchedAlmond">
      This uses automatic page sizing with minimum page size of 3 by 5 inches,
      and a maximum page size of 6 by 10 inches.

The following example shows how to set the PageWidth property programmatically.
