FlowDocument.PageHeight FlowDocument.PageHeight FlowDocument.PageHeight FlowDocument.PageHeight Property


Gets or sets the preferred height for pages in a FlowDocument.

 property double PageHeight { double get(); void set(double value); };
public double PageHeight { get; set; }
member this.PageHeight : double with get, set
Public Property PageHeight As Double

Property Value

The preferred height, in device independent pixels, for pages in the FlowDocument. A value of NaN (equivalent to an attribute value of "Auto") causes the page height to be determined automatically. The default is NaN.


The following example shows how to set the PageHeight attribute of a FlowDocument element.

    <Paragraph Background="BlanchedAlmond">
      This uses automatic page sizing with minimum page size of 3 by 5 inches,
      and a maximum page size of 6 by 10 inches.

The following example shows how to set the PageHeight property programmatically.

FlowDocument flowDoc = new FlowDocument(new Paragraph(new Run("A bit of text content...")));
// Set PageHeight and PageWidth to "Auto".
flowDoc.PageHeight = Double.NaN;
flowDoc.PageWidth = Double.NaN;
// Specify minimum page sizes.
flowDoc.MinPageWidth = 680.0;
flowDoc.MinPageHeight = 480.0;
//Specify maximum page sizes.
flowDoc.MaxPageWidth = 1024.0;
flowDoc.MaxPageHeight = 768.0;
Dim flowDoc As New FlowDocument(New Paragraph(New Run("A bit of text content...")))
' Set PageHeight and PageWidth to "Auto".
flowDoc.PageHeight = Double.NaN
flowDoc.PageWidth = Double.NaN
' Specify minimum page sizes.
flowDoc.MinPageWidth = 680.0
flowDoc.MinPageHeight = 480.0
'Specify maximum page sizes.
flowDoc.MaxPageWidth = 1024.0
flowDoc.MaxPageHeight = 768.0


If viewed on a continuum, the MinPageHeight property takes precedence over the MaxPageHeight property, which in turn takes precedence over the PageHeight property. If all three properties are set on a given page, this is the order in which the properties are evaluated.

XAML Attribute Usage

<object PageHeight="double"/>  
- or -  
<object PageHeight="qualifiedDouble"/>  
- or -  
<object PageHeight="Auto"/>  

XAML Values


String representation of a Double value equal to or greater than 0.0 but smaller than Double.PositiveInfinity. An unqualified value is measured in device independent pixels. Strings need not explicitly include decimal points.

A double value as described above, followed by one of the following unit specifiers: 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

Causes the page height to be determined automatically. Equivalent to a property value of Double.NaN.
