DataGrid.RowHeight Property


Gets or sets the suggested height for all rows.

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

public double RowHeight { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.Double

The height of the rows, in device-independent units (1/96th inch per unit). The registered default is NaN. For more information about what can influence the value, see DependencyProperty.

When you set a value for the RowHeight property, it must be equal to or greater than 0.0. Set this property to NaN ("Auto" in XAML) to make the row automatically adjust its size to fit its content.

Double.PositiveInfinity is not a valid value for this property. The value restrictions on the Double value are enforced by a ValidateValueCallback mechanism. If you attempt to set a value that is not valid, a run-time exception is thrown.

The RowHeight property is applied to each DataGridRow that does not have its Height property set. If a conflict exists between the RowHeight property and the MinRowHeight property, MinRowHeight takes precedence.

Setting RowHeight tells the layout system the amount of space requested by each row. The return value of this property is always the value that it was set to. To get the actual amount of space allocated, use the ActualHeight property of the DataGridRow. For more information about space allocation, see Layout.
