ThicknessHelper Class


Provides helper methods to evaluate or set Thickness values. C# code should use members of Thickness instead.

Thickness is a Windows Runtime structure that represents a pixel measure applied to the outside (margin) or inside (padding) render dimensions of a rectangular UI element. For example, Border.BorderThickness uses a Thickness value.

ThicknessHelper is one of several Helper classes that are intended to provide utility methods for Windows Runtime structure values. C# code can use members of Thickness instead, because utility members are available directly on the structure due to .NET runtime support. C++ code can only access the data values on Thickness, for example the Top field value. For C++ developers, approximately the same utility features that a C# developer could use directly on Thickness are available in a static form on the ThicknessHelper class.


FromLengths(Double, Double, Double, Double)

Creates a Thickness value based on element values. C# code should use the Thickness(Double,Double,Double,Double) constructor instead.


Creates a new Thickness value using a uniform value for all the element values. C# code should use the Thickness(Double) constructor instead.
