#339 – Wrapping a Button’s Text Content to Multiple Lines

When a Button control automatically sizes to fit its content, it will grow to fit the text in the Content property.  However, the text will always remain on a single line.

        <Button Content="Click me if you want to see something cool.  In fact, click as many times as you like."
                HorizontalAlignment="Center" VerticalAlignment="Center"


If you constrain the button’s Width, however, the text will be clipped.

To get the text on a face of a Button to wrap, you can use a TextBlock as the button’s Content, rather than a simple text string.  You also set the TextWrapping property on the TextBlock.

        <Button HorizontalAlignment="Center" VerticalAlignment="Center"
                Margin="10" Width="120">
            <TextBlock Text="Click me if you want to see something cool.  In fact, click as many times as you like."
                       TextWrapping="Wrap"/>
        </Button>
