Border: We use Border to display a border around your content, and for that we must place the elements within a parent Border element. Border can have only one child. To display multiple child elements, you need to place an additional panel element within the parent Border. You can then place child elements within that panel element.

<Border Margin="5" Padding="5" Background="LightYellow"
BorderBrush="Blue" BorderThickness="5,5,6,5" CornerRadius="3"
