Examples

The following example shows how to use the ScrollBarVisibility enumeration members to set the HorizontalScrollBarVisibility property of a ScrollViewer control.

<StackPanel Height="400" Width="300">
    <ScrollViewer HorizontalScrollBarVisibility="Auto" VerticalScrollBarVisibility="Disabled">
        <Grid VerticalAlignment="Top" HorizontalAlignment="Left">
            <Rectangle Fill="Green" Width="450" Height="200"></Rectangle>
            <TextBlock Margin="10,10,10,10">
                Auto. The horizontal scroll bar is shown if the content is wider than the viewport.
            </TextBlock>
        </Grid>
    </ScrollViewer>
    <ScrollViewer HorizontalScrollBarVisibility="Hidden">
        <Grid>
            <Rectangle Fill="Blue" Width="450" Height="200" />
            <TextBlock Margin="10,10,10,10">
                Hidden. The horizontal scroll bar is hidden even if the content is wider than the viewport.
            </TextBlock>
        </Grid>
    </ScrollViewer>
</StackPanel>
