#410 – Default Grid Row and Column Sizes

By default, all rows in a Grid are set to the same height, distributing the entire height of the Grid among all of its rows.  This is true if you do not explicitly set the height for any of the rows.

Similarly, if you don’t specify the width of any of the columns in the Grid, the entire width of the Grid is distributed evenly across all of its columns, so that each column is the same width.

    <Grid ShowGridLines="True">
        <Grid.RowDefinitions>
            <RowDefinition/>
            <RowDefinition/>
        </Grid.RowDefinitions>
        <Grid.ColumnDefinitions>
            <ColumnDefinition/>
            <ColumnDefinition/>
            <ColumnDefinition/>
        </Grid.ColumnDefinitions>

        <Label Grid.Row="0" Grid.Column="0" Content="Larry" Margin="5" Background="Lavender"/>
        <Label Grid.Row="0" Grid.Column="1" Content="Moe" Margin="5" Background="Magenta"/>
        <Label Grid.Row="0" Grid.Column="2" Content="Curly" Margin="5" Background="Cornsilk"/>

        <Button Grid.Row="1" Grid.Column="1" Margin="5" Content="Do Eye Poke" />
