How to Maximize Wpf Window only vertically or horizontally

Posted by Ricibald on 5th November 2009

To maximize Wpf Window only vertically or horizontally simply use this snippet code:

    public partial class MyWindow : Window
        public MyWindow()
        private void fillHeight()
            PropertyChangedCallback tmpChanged =
                (source, args) =>
                        var workArea = (Rect)args.NewValue;
                        this.Height = workArea.Height;
            DependencyProperty tmp = DependencyProperty.Register("tmp", typeof (Rect), typeof (Window), new PropertyMetadata(new PropertyChangedCallback(tmpChanged)));
            this.SetResourceReference(tmp, SystemParameters.WorkAreaKey);

In this way you can subscribe to notifications of a DynamicResource when you have to convert the value.

Download Snapping / Sticky / Magnetic Windows for WPF

Posted by Ricibald on 19th October 2009

Starting from Sticky Windows on CodeProject (makes your windows snapping like winamp or google talk) I adapted the project developed for standard WinForm in Wpf Application. It works with multiple monitor and with windows vista/7.


I adapted the following interface to get the app work with WPF App:

    public interface IFormAdapter
        IntPtr Handle { get; }
        Rectangle Bounds { get; set; }
        Size MaximumSize { get; set; }
        Size MinimumSize { get; set; }
        bool Capture { get; set; }
        void Activate();
        Point PointToScreen(Point point);

    public class WinFormAdapter : IFormAdapter 
        // Original Code Implementation

    public class WpfFormAdapter : IFormAdapter 
        // My Implementation

Enjoy and please give me feedback!
