Type Description
SizeToContent

A SizeToContent enumeration value that specifies whether a panel will automatically size itself to fit the size of its content.

Remarks

The SizeToContent property specifies whether a panel’s height, width, or both are set to fit the panel content when the panel is floating.

If SizeToContent is Manual, the panel height and width are specified with the BaseLayoutItem.ItemHeight and BaseLayoutItem.ItemWidth properties.

Note

If the panel automatically sizes itself to fit its content, the panel’s BaseLayoutItem.ItemHeight and BaseLayoutItem.ItemWidth properties have no effect.

The following code sample specifies the LayoutPanel‘s SizeToContent property:

<Window  ...
  xmlns:dxdo="http://schemas.devexpress.com/winfx/2008/xaml/docking">
  <dxdo:DockLayoutManager>
    <dxdo:DockLayoutManager.FloatGroups>
      <dxdo:FloatGroup>
        <dxdo:LayoutPanel Caption="Panel1" dxdo:FloatGroup.SizeToContent="WidthAndHeight">
          <!-- LayoutPanel's Content -->
        </dxdo:LayoutPanel>
      </dxdo:FloatGroup>
    </dxdo:DockLayoutManager.FloatGroups>
  </dxdo:DockLayoutManager>
<Window>
