Height/Width="Auto" causes an exception

Asked On November 9, 2009 11:23 PM UTC

I want to use a series of text editors in a stack panel. The effect I'm looking for is as if there were one syntax-highlighting text-editor, but with distinct sections. Each editor should therefore have a height equal to the length of existing text, and should expand as the amount of text increases. Conceptually, this is accomplished by setting the EditControl's height to Auto. However, this causes the following exception:

Layout measurement override of element 'Syncfusion.Windows.Edit.EditPresenter' should not return PositiveInfinity as its DesiredSize, even if Infinity is passed in as available size.

It looks like the edit control is unable to determine what size it needs to show its contents.

Thanks for logging this issue in your defect tracking system. I want to make sure to point out, though, that the solution you proposed is not really a workaround. A workaround in my book is a way to handle a problem without addressing the root cause. My problem here is not the exception that gets thrown; it's that I want to have the edit control take up exactly the amount of space necessary to show its contents. Your example doesn't solve this issue.
