Public Enumeration TextWrapping

Member nameDescription
NoWrap

No line wrapping is performed.

Wrap

Line-breaking occurs if the line overflows beyond the available block width, even if the standard line breaking algorithm cannot determine any line break opportunity, as in the case of a very long word constrained in a fixed-width container with no scrolling allowed.

WrapWithOverflow

Line-breaking occurs if the line overflows beyond the available block width. However, a line may overflow beyond the block width if the line breaking algorithm cannot determine a line break opportunity, as in the case of a very long word constrained in a fixed-width container with no scrolling allowed.

The following example demonstrates how to set the value of the TextWrapping property of a TextBox.

Private Sub wrapOff(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As RoutedEventArgs)
    myTextBox.TextWrapping = TextWrapping.NoWrap
End Sub
