Object Type Path to ShrinkEmptyAutoSizeDefinition


This property affects auto-size rows/columns (their ColumnDefinition.SizeType/RowDefinition.SizeType properties are set to AutoSize) when they become empty.

Set the ShrinkEmptyAutoSizeDefinition property to True to shrink an empty row/column to the minimum width/height specified by the OptionsTableLayoutGroup.AutoSizeDefaultDefinitionLength property.

If the ShrinkEmptyAutoSizeDefinition property is set to Default or False, empty columns/rows do not necessarily shrink to the minimum length. This row's/column's minimum size is limited to the OptionsTableLayoutGroup.AutoSizeDefaultDefinitionLength value, while the maximum size is not constrained.
