Hi developers!

I have a grid in xaml that has two columns with widths 4.5* and 5.5*

In column 1 i have a textblock. When this textblock has text that is very long it is making the textblock column very wide and my second column is getting smaller.

I need the textblock column to stay the wide that is set and wrap the text instead.

Here is the xaml:

        <RowDefinition Height="25"  />
        <ColumnDefinition Width="4.5*"/>
        <ColumnDefinition Width="5.5*"/>
    <TextBlock x:Name="lblCheck" Text="{Binding Path=Text}"  Grid.Column="0"  Grid.Row="0" TextWrapping="Wrap" Margin="5,0,0,0"/>
    <CheckBox x:Name="chkOption" Grid.Column="1" IsChecked="{Binding Path=Checked}" Grid.Row="0"  IsEnabled="True"/>

    The code you posted works fine, other than the fact your RowHeight is set to 35 so it only shows at most 2 lines of text for me.

    Try setting your RowHeight to *
