    [RESOLVED] managing Text Block!

    Hi! This is my first WPF application. Here I have 25 Text Blocks side by side and the window is set at maximized state. And Here is the Problem when My system screen resolution at 800 X 600 it runs fine because window size is of 800 X 600.....but when my system screen resolution is set more than that only middle text text block stretches and if I improve the anchoring all the text boxes gets together in one side of the screen leaving the other half empty which does not look nice.
    I have tried the same thing on the Windows Form but failed after long try which is the same reason why I shifted to WPF. I have similar threads over the C# window form forum so the guys who have spend their time helping me, please dont get pissed off...I have tried my best solving this problem.....
    Everything ashide Help on this part would be really Helpful...

    What behavior do you expect?

    When resizing the app, do you expect the width of each textbox to grow and shrink equally?

    Let me ask the question again....

    Do you expect the width of each textbox to grow and shrink equally?

    Re: managing Text Block!

    Here you go.

    To simplify the code, I used a TextBlock style to get rid of the redundant properties.

    To get each textblock to resize proportially, I added some columns to the grid.

    Fyi. When you attach a project, please remove the unnecessary files (*.suo) and folders (bin and obj).

    See the updated .zip attachment.

    Re: managing Text Block!

    Btw, the previous code is a quick and dirty approach. You would probably want to use a different control (like a listbox) and bind to a collection. That way, you aren't tied to exactly 24 items (unless of course, 24 items is what you need).
