ScrollViewer.CanContentScroll Property

Gets or sets a value that indicates whether elements that support the IScrollInfo interface are allowed to scroll.

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

public bool CanContentScroll { get; set; }
/** @property */
public boolean get_CanContentScroll ()

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

public function get CanContentScroll () : boolean

public function set CanContentScroll (value : boolean)

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

Property Value

true if content can scroll; otherwise, false. The default value is true.

Physical scrolling is used to scroll content by a predetermined physical increment, typically by a value that is declared in pixels. Logical scrolling is used to scroll to the next item in the logical tree. If you require physical scrolling instead of logical scrolling, wrap the host Panel element in a ScrollViewer and set its CanContentScroll property to false. Physical scrolling is the default scroll behavior for most Panel elements.

The following example demonstrates how to set the CanContentScroll property by using code. For the complete sample, see ScrollChanged Event Sample.

public void scrollTrue(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e)
    sv1.CanContentScroll = true;
    sv1.Height = 600;
    myStackPanel.Visibility = Visibility.Visible;
    btn1.Visibility = Visibility.Collapsed;
