Property Value

Type: Int32
The number of columns of text in the bounding rectangle.
ArgumentOutOfRangeExceptionValue is less than 1.
When applied to a TextBox this property takes the width of the bounding box for the text and divides it by the number of columns specified. These columns are then treated as overflow containers in that when the previous column has been filled with text the next column acts as the repository for additional text. When all columns have been filled and text still remains then the overflow properties set for this TextBox are used and the text is reflowed to make room for additional text.
