             Width="300" Height="150" TextWrapping="Wrap" TextAlignment="Center" MaxLength="500" AcceptsReturn="True" />

End Sub

Private Sub CreateControls()

    'Create stack panel
    Dim MyStackPanel As StackPanel = New StackPanel

    'Create the first text box
    Dim MyTB1 As TextBox = New TextBox
    MyTB1.Width = 300
    MyTB1.Height = 150
    MyTB1.Text = "A text box that demonstrates TextWrapping, TextAlignment, MaxLength and AcceptsReturn"
    MyTB1.TextWrapping = TextWrapping.Wrap
    MyTB1.TextAlignment = TextAlignment.Center
    MyTB1.MaxLength = 500
    MyTB1.AcceptsReturn = True
    MyTB1.Margin = New Thickness(20, 20, 0, 0)

    'Create the second text box
    Dim MyTB2 As TextBox = New TextBox
    MyTB2.Margin = New Thickness(20, 20, 0, 0)
    MyTB2.Text = "A text box that demonstrates HorizontalScrollBarVisibility and VerticalScrollBarVisibility"
    MyTB2.Width = 300
    MyTB2.Height = 150
    MyTB2.AcceptsReturn = True
    MyTB2.HorizontalScrollBarVisibility = ScrollBarVisibility.Visible
    MyTB2.VerticalScrollBarVisibility = ScrollBarVisibility.Visible

    'Add the text boxes to the stack panel
    MyStackPanel.Children.Add(MyTB1)
    MyStackPanel.Children.Add(MyTB2)
    Me.Content = MyStackPanel
End Sub
