SfDataGrid - infinite height

I am using Syncfusion's SfDataGrid instead of standard one, but this question is more about XAML, not the control itself, I think.

So, I have a window with DataGrid. If there is for example 60 records, then the window gets really tall. I want the window not to change its size at all. And really don't know why it's happening.

This is my XAML:


<Grid>
    <Grid.ColumnDefinitions>
        <ColumnDefinition Width="*"/>
        <ColumnDefinition Width="Auto"/>
    </Grid.ColumnDefinitions>

    <Grid Grid.Column="0">
        <Grid.RowDefinitions>
            <RowDefinition Height="*"/>
            <RowDefinition Height="Auto"/>
        </Grid.RowDefinitions>
        <StackPanel Margin="10,0,10,0" Grid.Row="0" DataContext="{Binding Info}">
            <TextBlock Text="Amount:"/>
            <sf:CurrencyTextBox Value="{Binding Amount}" Margin="0,0,0,10"/>
            <!-- some other controls -->

            <Grid>
                <Grid.RowDefinitions>
                    <RowDefinition Height="Auto"/>
                    <RowDefinition Height="Auto"/>
                </Grid.RowDefinitions>

                <Grid.ColumnDefinitions>
                    <ColumnDefinition Width="Auto"/>
                    <ColumnDefinition Width="*"/>
                </Grid.ColumnDefinitions>

                <TextBlock Grid.Column="0" Grid.Row="0" Style="{StaticResource LeftLabel}"
                           Text="Count:"/>
                <sf:UpDown Grid.Column="1" Grid.Row="0" Margin="0,0,0,5"
                           Value="{Binding Count}"/>

                <TextBlock Grid.Column="0" Grid.Row="1" Style="{StaticResource LeftLabel}"
                           Text="Year count:"/>
                <sf:UpDown Grid.Column="1" Grid.Row="1" 
                           Value="{Binding YearCount}"/>
            </Grid>

        </StackPanel>

        <Button Grid.Row="1" HorizontalAlignment="Right" VerticalAlignment="Bottom" Margin="0,10,10,5" 
                Content="Simulate >>"
                Command="{Binding SimulateCommand}"/>
    </Grid>

<!-- This is right part of the window with datagrid -->
    <DockPanel Grid.Column="1">
        <WrapPanel DockPanel.Dock="Top">
            <TextBlock Margin="10" Text="Total amount:" />
            <TextBlock Text="{Binding TotalAmount"/>
        </WrapPanel>

<!-- and the datagrid -->
        <sf:SfDataGrid AutoGenerateColumns="False"
                       AllowDeleting="False"
                       AllowEditing="False"
                       IsReadOnly="False"
                       AllowGrouping="False"
                       AllowFiltering="False"
                       ItemsSource="{Binding History}">
            <sf:SfDataGrid.Columns>
                <sf:GridDateTimeColumn DisplayBinding="{Binding Date}" MappingName="PaymentDay" HeaderText="Date"/>
                <sf:GridCurrencyColumn DisplayBinding="{Binding Amount}" MappingName="PayAmount" HeaderText="Amount"/>
            </sf:SfDataGrid.Columns>
        </sf:SfDataGrid>

    </DockPanel>        
</Grid>


So what is wrong with it?

We have analyzed your query. It seems that your requirement is to restrict the height of window and this can be achieved by setting Window.Height property. Please refer to the below code snippet 
  
<Window 
    x:Class="SfDataGridDemo.MainWindow" 
    xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml/presentation" 
    xmlns:x="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml" 
    xmlns:sf="http://schemas.syncfusion.com/wpf" 
   xmlns:interactivity="http://schemas.microsoft.com/expression/2010/interactivity" 
    xmlns:local="clr-namespace:SfDataGridDemo" 
    Title="SfDataGrid Demo" 
    Height="600" 
    Icon="App.ico" 
    WindowStartupLocation="CenterScreen"> 
  
Please refer to the sample in the below link

We are not clear with your requirement. We suspect that your requirement is to apply formatting for the columns in DataGrid. Please find below KB articles and UG links to know more details

Hi, thanks for answer. But is this the REAL solution? Or just workaround to a some problem? Should I always specify window height in WPF?

Hi Adam, 
 
We have analyzed your query. You can able set the size for the window, based on the size the window is displayed in UI. Otherwise default size is calculated and display, but this is not related to our Syncfusion controls.  
Please find the below links
