#505 – The Header of a GroupBox Can Be Anything

The Header property of a GroupBox control specifies the content to be displayed along the top border of the GroupBox.  This is often a text string, specified in XAML.  But similar to the Content property of a content control, the Header property can be set to any object.

In the example below, Header is set to a Label, which then allows more control over how the Label will appear than if just a text string had been used.

    <GroupBox Margin="15">
        <GroupBox.Header>
            <Label FontWeight="Bold" FontFamily="Georgia" FontSize="16"  Content="Dog Info"/>
        </GroupBox.Header>
        <Grid Margin="10">
            <Grid.RowDefinitions>
                <RowDefinition Height="Auto"/>
                <RowDefinition Height="Auto"/>
                <RowDefinition/>
            </Grid.RowDefinitions>
            <Grid.ColumnDefinitions>
                <ColumnDefinition/>
                <ColumnDefinition/>
            </Grid.ColumnDefinitions>

            <Label Grid.Row="0" Grid.Column="0" Content="Name:" FontWeight="Bold" HorizontalAlignment="Right"/>
            <Label Grid.Row="0" Grid.Column="1" Content="Kirby"/>
            <Label Grid.Row="1" Grid.Column="0" Content="Age:" FontWeight="Bold" HorizontalAlignment="Right"/>
            <Label Grid.Row="1" Grid.Column="1" Content="15" />
            <Label Grid.Row="2" Grid.Column="0" Content="Hobby:" FontWeight="Bold" HorizontalAlignment="Right"/>
            <Label Grid.Row="2" Grid.Column="1" Content="Chasing balls"/>
        </Grid>
    </GroupBox>
