I am not sure that I understand just what you need, but you might be able to use a GridLength parameter with GridUnitType.Star and a weighted value to set the value to be a percentage.  That would only apply where a GridLength value is allowed.

I was able to do it like this

  WinControls.TreeView tv = sender as WinControls.TreeView;

            if (tv != null)
            {
                FrameworkElement element = tv.Parent as FrameworkElement;

                tv.MaxHeight = (element.ActualHeight / 100) * 85;
            }
