Hi,

I have a column that contains a ListBox.  The DataTemplate for the listbox contains a couple of controls, one of which is a TextBlock.  I want to have contents of the TextBlock wrap.  So to make that occur I determined that I had to set the width to a specific value.  However, that creates a problem when the user resizes the column.  How can I have the text in the TextBlock wrap AND resize when the user changes the width of the column?


The code I am using is :
<ListBox  Margin="0,5,0,0" x:Name="lstComments" BorderBrush="Transparent"  >
                <ListBox.ItemTemplate>
                    <DataTemplate>
                        <StackPanel Orientation="Vertical">
                            <TextBlock TextWrapping="Wrap"  Width=70
                                    Text="{Binding Path=LayoutAnnotation.ANNOTATION.ANNOTATION1}"
// tried this it did not handle resizing
 //                                     Width="{Binding ElementName=lstComments, Path=ActualWidth, Converter={StaticResource /
// AddConverter}, ConverterParameter=-15}"
//
   />
 ...
                        </StackPanel>
                    </DataTemplate>
                </ListBox.ItemTemplate>
            </ListBox>

Thanks

Jerry

Hi Jerry,

 Why not remove this width and set width for the column itself?

Vlad,

Are suggesting setting the column width on column creation or resizing?

Thanks,
