Hi Namita,

Thanks for using syncfusion products.

We have analyzed on your requirements and this can be acheived by using the following codes.

Code snippet [XAML]

//The below code helps us to see the text wrapping in the cell
Code snippet [C#]:

this.grid.Loaded += new RoutedEventHandler(grid_Loaded);

void grid_Loaded(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e)
// Resizing the row size to show text in mutiple lines.
this.grid.Model.ResizeRowsToFit(GridRangeInfo.Table(), GridResizeToFitOptions.NoShrinkSize);

We have prepared a sample based on this and you can find the sample under the following location.

Please let us know if this helps you.

Thanks, your sample works.
But guess the property on the Grid is not intuitive. What does the TextWrapping property do in the xaml file then?

Hi Namita,

Thanks for your update.

The TextWrapping property wraps the complete text to the cell. To see the visual effects of the TextWrapping we have to use the method called ResizeRowsToFit. We have updated video snap shot regarding this. Please have a look on this and let us know if this helps you.
