RelativeSource Constructor (RelativeSourceMode, Type, Int32)

Initializes a new instance of the RelativeSource class with an initial mode and additional tree-walking qualifiers for finding the desired relative source.

Namespace:  System.Windows.Data
Assembly:  PresentationFramework (in PresentationFramework.dll)

public RelativeSource(
	RelativeSourceMode mode,
	Type ancestorType,
	int ancestorLevel
)

Parameters

mode
Type: System.Windows.Data.RelativeSourceMode
One of the RelativeSourceMode values. For this signature to be relevant, this should be FindAncestor.
ancestorType
Type: System.Type
The Type of ancestor to look for.
ancestorLevel
Type: System.Int32
The ordinal position of the desired ancestor among all ancestors of the given type.

ancestorType and ancestorLevel have no relevance if given as parameters for a mode other than FindAncestor. Do not use this signature for the other RelativeSourceMode values.

The following returns the second ItemsControl encountered on the upward path starting at the target element of the binding.


Binding myBinding = new Binding();
// Returns the second ItemsControl encountered on the upward path
// starting at the target element of the binding
myBinding.RelativeSource = new RelativeSource(
    RelativeSourceMode.FindAncestor, typeof(ItemsControl), 2);
