VisualElement.MinimumHeightRequest VisualElement.MinimumHeightRequest Property

Definition

Gets or sets a value which overrides the minimum height the element will request during layout.

public double MinimumHeightRequest { get; set; }
member this.MinimumHeightRequest : double with get, set
Property Value

The minimum height the element requires. Default value is -1.

Remarks

MinimumHeightRequest is used to override the results of a call to Xamarin.Forms.VisualElement.GetSizeRequest (double, double) by setting the minimum height property. This causes overflow handling to shrink this element to its minimum height before elements who do not have a minimum size set.

The following example sets the MinimumHeightRequest to enable an image to shrink below it's normal size.


  void Build (string veryLongString)
  {
    var label = new Label {Text = veryLongString};
    var image = new Image {Source = "image500x500.png"};

    image.MinimumHeightRequest = 20;
    Content = new StackLayout {
      Children {
        label,
        image
      }
    };
  }
              
</div>
