VisualElement.MinimumWidthRequest VisualElement.MinimumWidthRequest Property


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.


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 {
