FlowLayoutPanel.WrapContents Property

Gets or sets a value indicating whether the FlowLayoutPanel control should wrap its contents or let the contents be clipped.

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

public bool WrapContents { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.Boolean
true if the contents should be wrapped; otherwise, false. The default is true.

If the area of the panel is too small to contain all its child controls, at least one child control will be clipped regardless of the wrapping mode.

Subsequent resizing of the panel will reapply the layout to the contained controls.

The following code example sets the value of the WrapContents property depending on the Checked value of a CheckBox control.

	private void wrapContentsCheckBox_CheckedChanged(
		System.Object sender, 
		System.EventArgs e)
    {
        this.FlowLayoutPanel1.WrapContents = 
			this.wrapContentsCheckBox.Checked;
    }
