I am writing a Windows Phone 7 application and am putting together a help page.  I have created a text document with the text that I want to be displayed within a text block on the page that is inside a scroll viewer so the text can run longer.  I am having a problem where not all the text is loading into the text block.  It appears to be cut off at a certain point.  Is there a restriction on character count that a text block can contain?  

If there's isn't a restriction then how would one add a larger amount of text to the text block

OR

If there is a restriction is there another method that I could use to display a fairly large amount of text within 1 xaml page?

Thanks

you can create a textbox thats large (Big height) Set the wrapping to true and that should hold your text.

Good morning Mikal613... your suggestion solved it.  In hindsite it is so obvious but until you mentioned "Big height" it never clicked.  The only issue I had was the text blocks height was the size of my scroll viewer not "Auto (0)" so it looked the same size physically but wouldn't expand as the text size increased.  Thanks for the help.
