#894 – Creating a GroupBox with a Header But No Border

There are cases where you might want a GroupBox for grouping a set of child controls, but without the visual border around the controls.  You can retain the header element, but remove the border of a GrouBox by setting the BorderBrush property to Transparent.

    <GroupBox Margin="10" Header="Roman Guys" BorderBrush="Transparent">
        <StackPanel>
            <StackPanel Orientation="Horizontal">
                <Image Source="Augustus.jpg" Height="100" Margin="5"/>
                <TextBlock Text="Augustus" VerticalAlignment="Center"/>
            </StackPanel>
            <StackPanel Orientation="Horizontal">
                <Image Source="Tiberius.jpg" Height="100" Margin="5"/>
                <TextBlock Text="Tiberius" VerticalAlignment="Center"/>
            </StackPanel>
            <StackPanel Orientation="Horizontal">
                <Image Source="Caligula.jpeg" Height="100" Margin="5"/>
                <TextBlock Text="Caligula" VerticalAlignment="Center"/>
            </StackPanel>
        </StackPanel>
    </GroupBox>
