Examples

The following code examples demonstrate how to use the IsSharedSizeScope property in Extensible Application Markup Language (XAML) and code.

<DockPanel Name="dp1" Grid.IsSharedSizeScope="False" VerticalAlignment="Top" HorizontalAlignment="Left" Margin="10">

...

<StackPanel Orientation="Horizontal" DockPanel.Dock="Top">  
    <Button Click="setTrue" Margin="0,0,10,10">Set IsSharedSizeScope="True"</Button>
    <Button Click="setFalse" Margin="0,0,10,10">Set IsSharedSizeScope="False"</Button>
</StackPanel> 

<StackPanel Orientation="Horizontal" DockPanel.Dock="Top">

<Grid ShowGridLines="True" Margin="0,0,10,0">
  <Grid.ColumnDefinitions>
    <ColumnDefinition SharedSizeGroup="FirstColumn"/>
    <ColumnDefinition SharedSizeGroup="SecondColumn"/>
  </Grid.ColumnDefinitions>
  <Grid.RowDefinitions>
    <RowDefinition Height="Auto" SharedSizeGroup="FirstRow"/>
  </Grid.RowDefinitions>

    <Rectangle Fill="Silver" Grid.Column="0" Grid.Row="0" Width="200" Height="100"/>
    <Rectangle Fill="Blue" Grid.Column="1" Grid.Row="0" Width="150" Height="100"/>

    <TextBlock Grid.Column="0" Grid.Row="0" FontWeight="Bold">First Column</TextBlock>
    <TextBlock Grid.Column="1" Grid.Row="0" FontWeight="Bold">Second Column</TextBlock>
</Grid>

<Grid ShowGridLines="True">
  <Grid.ColumnDefinitions>
    <ColumnDefinition SharedSizeGroup="FirstColumn"/>
    <ColumnDefinition SharedSizeGroup="SecondColumn"/>
  </Grid.ColumnDefinitions>
  <Grid.RowDefinitions>        
    <RowDefinition Height="Auto" SharedSizeGroup="FirstRow"/>
  </Grid.RowDefinitions>

    <Rectangle Fill="Silver" Grid.Column="0" Grid.Row="0"/>
    <Rectangle Fill="Blue" Grid.Column="1" Grid.Row="0"/>

    <TextBlock Grid.Column="0" Grid.Row="0" FontWeight="Bold">First Column</TextBlock>
    <TextBlock Grid.Column="1" Grid.Row="0" FontWeight="Bold">Second Column</TextBlock>
</Grid>

</StackPanel>

<TextBlock Margin="10" DockPanel.Dock="Top" Name="txt1"/>

...

Events defined in Extensible Application Markup Language (XAML) are handled using code.

private void setTrue(object sender, System.Windows.RoutedEventArgs e)
{
    Grid.SetIsSharedSizeScope(dp1, true);
    txt1.Text = "IsSharedSizeScope Property is set to " + Grid.GetIsSharedSizeScope(dp1).ToString();
}

private void setFalse(object sender, System.Windows.RoutedEventArgs e)
{
    Grid.SetIsSharedSizeScope(dp1, false);
    txt1.Text = "IsSharedSizeScope Property is set to " + Grid.GetIsSharedSizeScope(dp1).ToString();
}
Private Sub setTrue(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal args As RoutedEventArgs)

    Grid.SetIsSharedSizeScope(dp1, True)
    txt1.Text = "IsSharedSizeScope Property is set to " + Grid.GetIsSharedSizeScope(dp1).ToString()
End Sub

Private Sub setFalse(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal args As RoutedEventArgs)

    Grid.SetIsSharedSizeScope(dp1, False)
    txt1.Text = "IsSharedSizeScope Property is set to " + Grid.GetIsSharedSizeScope(dp1).ToString()
End Sub

Remarks

Columns and rows participating in size sharing do not respect Star sizing. In this scenario, Star sizing is treated as Auto.

Grid size sharing does not work if IsSharedSizeScope is set to true within a resource template, and a SharedSizeGroup is defined outside of that template.
