Textbox is not allowing vertical alignment to center RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a textbox and want to apply vertical alignment as center so as to center align the text vertically but seems like I can not achieve this using vertical alignment/verticalcontentalignment. I have even tried to provide padding for this but no luck.

    Can anyone suggest how can I center align my text vertically in a textbox.

  • Hi Sachin Mehndiratta,

    If you set the height property in your textbox, please remove it.

    In addition, you could also allow vertical alignment via padding and VerticalContentAlignment, like this:

                <RowDefinition Height="auto"></RowDefinition>
                <RowDefinition Height="auto"></RowDefinition>
                <RowDefinition Height="auto"></RowDefinition>
            <TextBox Grid.Row="1" Grid.Column="1" Height="50" BorderThickness="1" BorderBrush="#FFD5D5D5" FontSize="36" Text="test" VerticalContentAlignment="Center" Padding="0" />
            <TextBox Grid.Row="3" Grid.Column="1" Height="60" BorderThickness="1" BorderBrush="#FFD5D5D5" FontSize="36" Text="test2" VerticalContentAlignment="Center" Padding="0" />

    Best regards,
