The .NET API Reference documentation has a new home. Visit the .NET API Browser on docs.microsoft.com to see the new experience.

Represents the smallest and largest possible paragraph width that can fully contain the specified text content.

Namespace:   System.Windows.Media.TextFormatting
Assembly:  PresentationCore (in PresentationCore.dll)

Public Structure MinMaxParagraphWidth
	Implements IEquatable(Of MinMaxParagraphWidth)


Gets the largest paragraph width possible that can fully contain the specified text content.


Gets the smallest paragraph width possible that can fully contain the specified text content.


Determines whether the CharacterBufferReference is equal to the current CharacterBufferReference object.


Determines whether the specified object is equal to the current CharacterBufferReference object.(Overrides ValueType.Equals(Object).)


Serves as a hash function for CharacterBufferReference. It is suitable for use in hashing algorithms and data structures such as a hash table.(Overrides ValueType.GetHashCode().)


Gets the Type of the current instance.(Inherited from Object.)


Returns the fully qualified type name of this instance.(Inherited from ValueType.)

The following example shows how to use the MinWidth property to generate the minimum paragraph width for the formatted lines of text.

Dim minMaxParaWidth As MinMaxParagraphWidth = formatter.FormatMinMaxParagraphWidth(customTextSource, 0, customTextParagraphProperties)

' Format each line of text from the text store and draw it.
Do While textStorePosition < customTextSource.Text.Length
	' Create a textline from the text store using the TextFormatter object.
	Using myTextLine As TextLine = formatter.FormatLine(customTextSource, textStorePosition, minMaxParaWidth.MinWidth, customTextParagraphProperties, Nothing)
		' Draw the formatted text into the drawing context.
		myTextLine.Draw(drawingContext, linePosition, InvertAxes.None)

		' Update the index position in the text store.
		textStorePosition += myTextLine.Length

		' Update the line position coordinate for the displayed line.
		linePosition.Y += myTextLine.Height
	End Using
