VisualElement.MinimumHeightRequest Property


Gets or sets a value which overrides the minimum height the element will request during layout.

public double MinimumHeightRequest { get; set; }
member this.MinimumHeightRequest : double with get, set

Property Value


The minimum height the element requires. Default value is -1.


MinimumHeightRequest is used to override the results of a call to GetSizeRequest(Double, Double) by setting the minimum height property. This causes overflow handling to shrink this element to its minimum height before elements who do not have a minimum size set.

The following example sets the MinimumHeightRequest to enable an image to shrink below its normal size.

void Build (string veryLongString)
  var label = new Label {Text = veryLongString};
  var image = new Image {Source = "image500x500.png"};

  image.MinimumHeightRequest = 20;
  Content = new StackLayout {
    Children {
