Namespace:  System.Windows.Controls
Assembly:  PresentationFramework (in PresentationFramework.dll)
XMLNS for XAML: http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml/presentation, http://schemas.microsoft.com/netfx/2007/xaml/presentation

public:
property int MinLines {
	int get ();
	void set (int value);
}
<object MinLines="int" .../>

Property Value

Type: System::Int32
The minimum number of visible lines. The default is 1.

Identifier field

Metadata properties set to true

Exception

MinLines is greater than MaxLines.

Getting this property returns the current value of MinLines. Setting this property causes the text box to resize if the number of visible lines is less than value specified by MinLines.

If the Height property is explicitly set on a TextBox, the MaxLines and MinLines property values are ignored.

The following example shows how to create a TextBox with a MinLines value of 1.
