FrameworkElement.MinWidth Property


Gets or sets the minimum width constraint of a FrameworkElement.

 property double MinWidth { double get(); void set(double value); };
double MinWidth();

public double MinWidth { get; set; }
var double = frameworkElement.minWidth;

Public Property MinWidth As Double
<frameworkElement MinWidth="double"/>

Property Value



The minimum width of the object, in pixels. The default is 0. This value can be any value equal to or greater than 0. However, PositiveInfinity is not valid.


MinWidth is one of three writable properties on FrameworkElement that specify width information. The other two are MaxWidth and Width. If there is a conflict between these values, the order of application for actual width determination is that first MinWidth must be honored, then MaxWidth, and finally, if it is within bounds, Width. All of these properties are recommendations to the layout behavior of the element's parent in the object tree. The width of the object after layout runs is available as the ActualWidth property value.
