Problem with text wrapping RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have ListBox
                <ListBox Name="SettingsList"
                         ItemTemplate="{StaticResource SettingsItemTemplate}"
                         ItemContainerStyle="{StaticResource ListBoxItemStyle}"
    and templates for them
            <DataTemplate x:Key="SettingsItemTemplate">
                <StackPanel Orientation="Horizontal"
                            Visibility="{Binding Visibility}"
                    <Image x:Name="IconImage"
                           Source="{Binding Image}"
                    <StackPanel Orientation="Vertical"
                        <TextBlock x:Name="TitleTextBlock"
                                   Text="{Binding Name}"
                                   Style="{StaticResource PhoneTextLargeStyle}"
                        <TextBlock x:Name="DescriptionTextBlock"
                               Text="{Binding Description}"
                               Style="{StaticResource PhoneTextSubtleStyle}"
        <Style x:Key="ListBoxItemStyle" TargetType="ListBoxItem">
            <Setter Property="HorizontalContentAlignment" Value="Stretch"/>
    ItemsSource is setting in code-behind
                List list = new List();
                list.Add(new BuyApplicationSettingsItem());
                list.Add(new InterfaceSettingsItem() { BasePage = this });
                list.Add(new ApplicationSettingsItem() { BasePage = this });
                list.Add(new DataManagementSettingsItem() { BasePage = this });
                list.Add(new RateApplicationSettingsItem());
                list.Add(new FeedbackSettingsItem());
                list.Add(new AboutSettingsItem() { BasePage = this });
                SettingsList.ItemsSource = list;
    The problem is no text wrapping in Description field, so a part of text can not be readed. What is wrong?

  • Try setting a Width or MaxWidth on either the TextBlock, Stackpanel or parent Stackpanel in your SettingsItemTemplate. 

    The text can't wrap because the TextBlock is growing to fit the text.
