QuestionVertical text in WPF grid Pin
Member 79891226-Jul-20 8:54
MemberMember 79891226-Jul-20 8:54 
I am making a table, using a grid, with one large left column, and to the right, four (or possibly more) check boxes / radio buttons, each in a quite narrow grid column. There is not enough room to label each of the CBs/RBs on every line, so I put the label in the top row, rotated 270 degrees as a vertical text, in a tall (100 units) but narrow (27 units) cell, just enough to hold the longest label.

My problem is that WPF appearently clips the label to the edges of the grid cell before rotating the contents, so in my first attempt, the label was clipped at 27 units while it was horizontal, and then this less-that-a-third of the label was rotated to vertical position. I discovered that I could use Grid.ColumnSpan="4" to give the labels enough horizontal space to be drawn in full before rotating. That works only if three extra columns exist, and that holds true only for the first radio button. So I have to place all four of them in column 1 (spanning cols 1-4), and then translate them horizontally to appear visually over their intended columns.

This is ugly, messy, inflexible and most certainly not something I would like to maintain in the future, with columns added, widths/heights adjusted, labels changed...:
<Grid>
  <Grid.RowDefinitions>
    <RowDefinition Height="120" />
    <RowDefinition Height="27" />
    <RowDefinition Height="27"/>
    <RowDefinition Height="27"/>
  </Grid.RowDefinitions>
  <Grid.ColumnDefinitions>
    <ColumnDefinition Width="*" />
    <ColumnDefinition Width="27"/>
    <ColumnDefinition Width="27"/>
    <ColumnDefinition Width="27"/>
    <ColumnDefinition Width="27"/>
  </Grid.ColumnDefinitions>

  <Label Grid.Row="0" Grid.Column="1" Grid.ColumnSpan="4" Content="Slett permanent" Height="120" Width="120" RenderTransformOrigin="0.5,0.5" VerticalAlignment="Center" >
    <Label.RenderTransform>
      <TransformGroup>
        <RotateTransform Angle="270"/>
      </TransformGroup>
    </Label.RenderTransform>
  </Label>

  <Label Grid.Row="0" Grid.Column="1" Grid.ColumnSpan="4" Content="Hopp over" Height="120" Width="120" RenderTransformOrigin="0.5,0.5" VerticalAlignment="Center" >
   <Label.RenderTransform>
      <TransformGroup>
        <RotateTransform Angle="270"/>
        <TranslateTransform X="27"/>
      </TransformGroup>
    </Label.RenderTransform>
  </Label>

 <Label Grid.Row="0" Grid.Column="1" Grid.ColumnSpan="4" Content="Legg inn i SiKo" Height="120" Width="120" RenderTransformOrigin="0.5,0.5" VerticalAlignment="Center">
   <Label.RenderTransform>
      <TransformGroup>
        <RotateTransform Angle="270"/>
        <TranslateTransform X="54"/>
      </TransformGroup>
    </Label.RenderTransform>
  </Label>

  <Label Grid.Row="0" Grid.Column="1" Grid.ColumnSpan="4" Content="Kopier til kildedisk" Height="120" Width="120" RenderTransformOrigin="0.5,0.5" VerticalAlignment="Center">
    <Label.RenderTransform>
      <TransformGroup>
        <RotateTransform Angle="270"/>
        <TranslateTransform X="81"/>
      </TransformGroup>
    </Label.RenderTransform>
  </Label>
Then follows code to fill the rows of the table below this top row.


There must be a simpler and better way to write a vertical (270 degrees rotated) text label over a column! But how?

(As you may see, I am certainly not a guru in XAML programming, so please be kiond to me Smile | :) )
