Layout in WPF are more versatile than for Windows Forms controls. In Windows Forms most of the frequently used layouts use the coordinate based control placement while in WPF it is slot based depending on the screen space. The most common used layouts in WPF are as follows:
Canvas Used Coordinate based Control Layout (Same as panel in normal Windows Forms)
Stack Layout Control are placed horizontally / vertically one above the other
Wrap Layout Controls are placed sequentially horizontally / vertically
Grid Layout Creates column, row based grid and each cell allows controls to be placed
Dock Panel Docks the control on specified area
