Property Value


The dimensions of the space between the presenter and its children as a Thickness value. Thickness is a structure that stores dimension values using pixel measures.


A Padding value applies to presentation rendering of each presented item and also to the header (if one is specified).

A related property is Margin (a property of FrameworkElement). For ItemsPresenter , margin and padding would typically blend together with the division between them not being apparent in the rendering. So it's typical to specify a Margin or a Padding, but not both. For more info about the relationship between margin and padding, see Alignment, margin, and padding or Define layouts with XAML.
