Resizing the Main Window of WPF Applications

If the main Window of an WPF application should automatically be sized to its content, setting the Width and Height properties to Auto does not help. With this setting the Window gets a default height and width. To resize the main window to its content, the property SizeToContent can be set. If the Height and Width properties are set as well to Auto, the Window gets resized dynamically as the size of the content changes.

<Window x:Class="SizingTest.Window1" xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml/presentation" xmlns:x="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml" Title="Window1" Width="Auto" Height="Auto" SizeToContent="WidthAndHeight" >
      <ColumnDefinition Width="Auto" />
      <ColumnDefinition Width="*" />
      <RowDefinition />
      <RowDefinition />
      <RowDefinition />
    <Label Margin="5" Grid.Column="0" Grid.Row="0">Value 1:</Label>
    <Label Margin="5" Grid.Column="0" Grid.Row="1">Value 2:</Label>
    <Label Margin="5" Grid.Column="0" Grid.Row="2">Value 3:</Label>
    <TextBox Margin="5" Grid.Column="1" Grid.Row="0" MinWidth="100" />
    <TextBox Margin="5" Grid.Column="1" Grid.Row="1" MinWidth="100" />
    <TextBox Margin="5" Grid.Column="1" Grid.Row="2" MinWidth="100" />

Thanks for the valuable information


I didn't know this. It solved my problem! Thanks!


thanks, it helped


That's fine, but if you don't want the USER to resize the window, add: ResizeMode=NoResize to the window properties, i.e. Window ... ResizeMode=NoResize ... /Window

A great boost emotional strength, therefore, it is an important precondition of all ethical behavior, who had no strong ambition, also won't be able to put this warm in career aspirations.

In my WPF application, i have many Components like Grids, StackPanels and inside them other components.
What I want to do is to autoresize all these components according to how the user resizes the window of the Application. I want user to see all components, no matter how small they will become...
I have put them all in a ViewBox, but when I maximize my application I see left and right white spaces.

What are the steps to do application's components auto-resized and auto-adjusted to the window???
I should change the size of ALL components dynamically? (I hope not...)
