NameDescription
System_CAPS_pubmethod GridLength

Initializes a new instance of the GridLength structure using the specified absolute value in pixels.

System_CAPS_pubmethod GridLength

Initializes a new instance of the GridLength structure and specifies what kind of value it holds.

NameDescription
System_CAPS_pubproperty System_CAPS_static

Gets an instance of GridLength that holds a value whose size is determined by the size properties of the content object.

System_CAPS_pubproperty

Gets the associated GridUnitType for the GridLength.

System_CAPS_pubproperty

Gets a value that indicates whether the GridLength holds a value that is expressed in pixels.

System_CAPS_pubproperty

Gets a value that indicates whether the GridLength holds a value whose size is determined by the size properties of the content object.

System_CAPS_pubproperty

Gets a value that indicates whether the GridLength holds a value that is expressed as a weighted proportion of available space.

System_CAPS_pubproperty

Gets a Double that represents the value of the GridLength.

NameDescription
System_CAPS_pubmethod Equals

Determines whether the specified GridLength is equal to the current GridLength.

System_CAPS_pubmethod Equals

Determines whether the specified object is equal to the current GridLength instance. (Overrides ValueTypeEquals.)

System_CAPS_pubmethod GetHashCode

Gets a hash code for the GridLength. (Overrides ValueTypeGetHashCode.)

System_CAPS_pubmethod GetType

Gets the Type of the current instance.(Inherited from Object.)

System_CAPS_pubmethod ToString

Returns a String representation of the GridLength.(Overrides ValueTypeToString.)

NameDescription
System_CAPS_puboperator System_CAPS_static Equality

Compares two GridLength structures for equality.

System_CAPS_puboperator System_CAPS_static Inequality

Compares two GridLength structures to determine if they are not equal.

Elements such as ColumnDefinition and RowDefinition use this type to describe width and height in order to support variable distribution of available space.

<object property="doubleLength"/>
- or -
<object property="autoValue"/>
doubleLength

The element’s length, described as either a Double value that specifies a device-independent units (1/96th inch per unit) measure, or as a qualifiedDouble (see below).

autoValue

The element's length, described by either the value Auto or *. See GridUnitType for more information on the values Auto and *.

qualifiedDouble

A double value as described above for any of the measures, followed by one of the following unit declaration strings: px, in, cm, pt.

px (default) is device-independent units (1/96th inch per unit)

in is inches; 1in==96px

cm is centimeters; 1cm==(96/2.54) px

pt is points; 1pt==(96/72) px
