Remarks

Use this enumeration to set the HorizontalScrollBarVisibility and VerticalScrollBarVisibility property values of the ScrollViewer control.

The member values of this enumeration specify ScrollBar visibility in a given direction. These member values also specify whether the corresponding ScrollViewer dimension is applied to its enclosed content.

When you apply the ViewportWidth or ViewportHeight to ScrollViewer content, you set the viewport size for the content.

Examples
