Hi - just wanting some advice as to how best to display a simple 'Properties' style page.  I thought that a Grid would be the best way to display this but opinions please.  Coming from a Windows Forms background I did try :-

 
<Grid x:Name="ContentPanel" Grid.Row="1" Margin="12,0,12,0">
  <Grid.ColumnDefinitions>
	<ColumnDefinition Width="150" />
	<ColumnDefinition Width="300" />
</Grid.ColumnDefinitions>
			
<Grid HorizontalAlignment="Left" Margin="7,13,0,0" Name="gridJobDetails" VerticalAlignment="Top" Width="450" />
<TextBlock Grid.Row="0" Grid.Column="0" Text="Job ID:"></TextBlock>
<TextBox Grid.Row="0" Grid.Column="1" Name="tbJobID"></TextBox>
		
<TextBlock Grid.Row="1" Grid.Column="0" Text="Address:"></TextBlock>
<TextBox Grid.Row="1" Grid.Column="1" Name="tbAddress"></TextBox>

Open in new window


But this doesn't give the effect I am after of a 2 column grid with 2 rows.

Why create grids??  Just create a StackPanel with labels
<StackPanel>
   <TextBlock Text="Job ID:"></TextBlock>
    <TextBox Name="tbJobID"></TextBox>
</StackPanel>

Although one advantage of the grid is when the devices orientation changes the grid should handle that.
