How can I wrap text in a label using WPF?

I have a

TextBox
and a Label. After clicking a button, I execute the following code:

label1.Content = textbox1.Text;


My question is, how do I enable text wrapping of the label? There may be too much text to display on one line, and I want it to automatically wrap to multiple lines if that is the case.

Answer

The Label control doesn't directly support text wrapping in WPF. You should use a TextBlock instead. (Of course, you can place the TextBlock inside of a Label control, if you wish.)

Sample code:

<TextBlock TextWrapping="WrapWithOverflow">
    Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Donec adipiscing
    nulla quis libero egestas lobortis. Duis blandit imperdiet ornare. Nulla
    ac arcu ut purus placerat congue. Integer pretium fermentum gravida.
</TextBlock>
