How to Use TextBox Control in WPF

The previous controls i.e. Label, TextBlock and etc. are used to display fix text in a window. Their text can be changed but through the programming, not by the user. Now to input some value by the user, or enable text editing, the text box control is used. The textbox control can contain only unformatted text in its text property.

<TextBox Width="200" Height=”25” Text="WPF Textbox control"></TextBox>

The above code will place a textbox control having width two hundred and above text in the textbox. The textbox is shown in the following image:

In the above textbox only one line can be written, means we can’t either enter a new line in to the textbox or cant inset more lines by default. To enable multiline, it have two properties to do that i.e. TextWrapping and AcceptReturn. To insert a multiline textbox, write following code:

<TextBox Width="200" Height="40" Margin="5" Text="WPF Textbox control" TextWrapping="Wrap" AcceptsReturn="True"></TextBox>
