TextBox.TextWrapping Property


Gets or sets how the text box should wrap text.

 property System::Windows::TextWrapping TextWrapping { System::Windows::TextWrapping get(); void set(System::Windows::TextWrapping value); };
public System.Windows.TextWrapping TextWrapping { get; set; }
member this.TextWrapping : System.Windows.TextWrapping with get, set
Public Property TextWrapping As TextWrapping

Property Value


One of the TextWrapping values that indicates how the text box should wrap text. The default is NoWrap.


The following example demonstrates how to set the value of this property.

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


Setting the TextWrapping attribute to Wrap causes entered text to wrap to a new line when the edge of the TextBox control is reached, automatically expanding the height of the TextBox control to include room for a new line, if necessary.
