Grid.IsSharedSizeScope Attached Property

Gets or sets a value that indicates that multiple Grid elements are sharing size information.

Namespace: System.Windows.Controls
Assembly: PresentationFramework (in PresentationFramework.dll)
XML Namespace:  http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml/presentation

See Grid.GetIsSharedSizeScope, Grid.SetIsSharedSizeScope
See Grid.GetIsSharedSizeScope, Grid.SetIsSharedSizeScope
See Grid.GetIsSharedSizeScope, Grid.SetIsSharedSizeScope
<object Grid.IsSharedSizeScope="bool" .../>

Property Value

true if this instance of Grid is sharing size properties with another Grid; otherwise, false. The default value is false.

Columns and rows participating in size sharing do not respect Star sizing. In this scenario, Star sizing is treated as Auto.

Grid size sharing does not work if IsSharedSizeScope is set to true within a resource template, and a SharedSizeGroup is defined outside of that template.

The following code examples demonstrate how to use the IsSharedSizeScope property in Extensible Application Markup Language (XAML) and code.

<DockPanel Name="dp1" Grid.IsSharedSizeScope="False" VerticalAlignment="Top" HorizontalAlignment="Left" Margin="10">

...

<StackPanel Orientation="Horizontal" DockPanel.Dock="Top">  
    <Button Click="setTrue" Margin="0,0,10,10">Set IsSharedSizeScope="True"</Button>
    <Button Click="setFalse" Margin="0,0,10,10">Set IsSharedSizeScope="False"</Button>
</StackPanel> 

<StackPanel Orientation="Horizontal" DockPanel.Dock="Top">
 
<Grid ShowGridLines="True" Margin="0,0,10,0">
  <Grid.ColumnDefinitions>
    <ColumnDefinition SharedSizeGroup="FirstColumn"/>
    <ColumnDefinition SharedSizeGroup="SecondColumn"/>
  </Grid.ColumnDefinitions>
  <Grid.RowDefinitions>
    <RowDefinition Height="Auto" SharedSizeGroup="FirstRow"/>
  </Grid.RowDefinitions>

    <Rectangle Fill="Silver" Grid.Column="0" Grid.Row="0" Width="200" Height="100"/>
    <Rectangle Fill="Blue" Grid.Column="1" Grid.Row="0" Width="150" Height="100"/>

    <TextBlock Grid.Column="0" Grid.Row="0" FontWeight="Bold">First Column</TextBlock>
    <TextBlock Grid.Column="1" Grid.Row="0" FontWeight="Bold">Second Column</TextBlock>
</Grid>

<Grid ShowGridLines="True">
  <Grid.ColumnDefinitions>
    <ColumnDefinition SharedSizeGroup="FirstColumn"/>
    <ColumnDefinition SharedSizeGroup="SecondColumn"/>
  </Grid.ColumnDefinitions>
  <Grid.RowDefinitions>        
    <RowDefinition Height="Auto" SharedSizeGroup="FirstRow"/>
  </Grid.RowDefinitions>

    <Rectangle Fill="Silver" Grid.Column="0" Grid.Row="0"/>
    <Rectangle Fill="Blue" Grid.Column="1" Grid.Row="0"/>
 
    <TextBlock Grid.Column="0" Grid.Row="0" FontWeight="Bold">First Column</TextBlock>
    <TextBlock Grid.Column="1" Grid.Row="0" FontWeight="Bold">Second Column</TextBlock>
</Grid>

</StackPanel>

<TextBlock Margin="10" DockPanel.Dock="Top" Name="txt1"/>

...

Events defined in Extensible Application Markup Language (XAML) are handled using code.

public void setTrue(object sender, System.Windows.RoutedEventArgs e)
{
    Grid.SetIsSharedSizeScope(dp1, true);
    txt1.Text = "IsSharedSizeScope Property is set to " + Grid.GetIsSharedSizeScope(dp1).ToString();
}

public void setFalse(object sender, System.Windows.RoutedEventArgs e)
{
    Grid.SetIsSharedSizeScope(dp1, false);
    txt1.Text = "IsSharedSizeScope Property is set to " + Grid.GetIsSharedSizeScope(dp1).ToString();
}
