ScrollViewer and ScrollToHorizontalOffset problem RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a StackPanel inside a ScrollViewer.  I am trying to set a scroll position to an item in the stack.  I am doing this code on the NavigateToEvent.  This works fine when the page loads, yet it seems to have uncovered a problem with the ScrollViewer.  If I do not set the ScrollToHorizontalOffset, all if fine.  However, if I set the ScrollToHorizontalOffset, the ScrollViewer will not longer scroll horizontally anymore.

  • I have fixed width controls in the scrollviewer, so I am setting the offset based on what is there.


    Note that I am setting this value in the LayoutUpdated event.

  • I found that you have to make sure to use ".ActualWidth" vs. "Width" with offsets (actual width is the currently rendered width).  Also, putting .UpdateLayout() also helps.  So:


    ScrollContainer.ScrollToHorizontalOffset(stackpanel1.ActualWidth - [how far to the left]);
