TextBlock.IsHyphenationEnabled Property

Gets or sets a value that indicates whether automatic hyphenation of words is enabled or disabled.

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

public bool IsHyphenationEnabled { get; set; }
/** @property */
public boolean get_IsHyphenationEnabled ()

/** @property */
public void set_IsHyphenationEnabled (boolean value)

public function get IsHyphenationEnabled () : boolean

public function set IsHyphenationEnabled (value : boolean)

<object IsHyphenationEnabled="bool" .../>

Property Value

true to indicate that automatic breaking and hyphenation of words is enabled; false otherwise. The default value is false.

The automatic word hyphenation feature enables a TextBlock to automatically break and hyphenate words, based on current layout conditions. This enables long words to begin on one line and continue on this next, and tends to achieve a more even distribution of white space in justified text. Words are broken and hyphenated according to standard grammar rules.
