#890 – Bringing a Control into View within a ScrollViewer

If you have a particular control contained within a ScrollViewer and you want to programmatically scroll to that control, you can use its BringIntoView method.

For example, when we click the “Find Nero” in the sample below, we’ll scroll the image of Nero into view.

    <Grid>
        <Grid.RowDefinitions>
            <RowDefinition Height="Auto"/>
            <RowDefinition/>
        </Grid.RowDefinitions>

        <Button Content="Find Nero" Click="btnFindNero_Click"
                HorizontalAlignment="Center" Margin="5"
                Padding="10,5"/>
        <ScrollViewer Grid.Row="1" Name="svMain" VerticalScrollBarVisibility="Visible">
            <StackPanel>
                <Image Source="Augustus.jpg" Height="100" Margin="5"/>
                <Image Source="Tiberius.jpg" Height="100" Margin="5"/>
                <Image Source="Caligula.jpeg" Height="100" Margin="5"/>
                <Image Source="Claudius.jpg" Height="100" Margin="5"/>
                <Image Name="imgNero" Source="Nero.jpg" Height="100" Margin="5"
                       ToolTip="Yup, I'm Nero"/>
                <Image Source="Galba.jpg" Height="100" Margin="5"/>
            </StackPanel>
        </ScrollViewer>
    </Grid>
        private void btnFindNero_Click(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e)
        {
            imgNero.BringIntoView();
        }
