Lesson 32 - WPF - Container Controls
In the previous lesson, WPF - Menu and Dialog Controls, we continued with our overview of WPF controls and showed how to use application menus and dialogs. Today's and the last tutorial on the basic WPF controls is dedicated to containers.
Containers are controls that contain other controls. We already know at least
StackPanel. We use them to align controls
in the form according to the rules of the used container type.
Representatives of these containers in WPF are:
Canvas is the simplest container. Elements are placed in it using the
properties, as shown in the following example. The element position is then
specified by the distance from these edges. The underlying elements are stacked
in the order in which they are defined. We use
Canvas mainly for
drawing, e.g. some diagrams using geometric shapes or pictures.
<Canvas Background="LightSteelBlue"> <Button Canvas.Left="10" Canvas.Top="10" Content="Top left"/> <Button Canvas.Right="10" Canvas.Top="10" Content="Top right"/> <Button Canvas.Left="10" Canvas.Bottom="10" Content="Bottom left"/> <Button Canvas.Right="10" Canvas.Bottom="10" Content="Bottom right"/> <Rectangle Fill="Lime" Canvas.Left="130" Canvas.Top="70" Width="50" Height="50"
