VisualElement.MinimumWidthRequest Property

Definition

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

public double MinimumWidthRequest { get; set; }
member this.MinimumWidthRequest : double with get, set

Property Value

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

Remarks

MinimumWidthRequest is used to override the results of a call to GetSizeRequest(Double, Double) by setting the minimum width property. This causes overflow handling to shrink this element to its minimum width before elements who do not have a minimum size set.

The following example sets the MinimumWidthRequest 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.MinimumWidthRequest = 20;
  Content = new StackLayout {
    Orientation = StackOrientation.Horizontal,
    Children {
      label,
      image
    }
  };
}
