ContentPresenter.ContentSource Property

Gets or sets the base name to use during automatic aliasing.

Namespace:  System.Windows.Controls
Assembly:  PresentationFramework (in PresentationFramework.dll)
XMLNS for XAML: http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml/presentation, http://schemas.microsoft.com/netfx/2007/xaml/presentation
public string ContentSource { get; set; }
<object ContentSource="string" .../>

Property Value

Type: System.String
The base name to use during automatic aliasing. The default is "Content".

Identifier field

ContentSourceProperty

Metadata properties set to true

None

This property should only be used when the ContentPresenter is in a template. When a template contains a ContentPresenter with ContentSource set to "Abc", the Content, ContentTemplate, and ContentTemplateSelector properties of the ContentPresenter are automatically aliased to Abc, AbcTemplate, and AbcTemplateSelector, respectively. Beginning with the .NET Framework 3.5 Service Pack 1, setting ContentSource to "Abc" also causes the ContentStringFormat property to be aliased to AbcStringFormat.

The two most useful values for this property are "Content" and "Header".

The following example shows a style for a HeaderedContentControl that demonstrates the usage of the ContentSource property:

<Style TargetType="HeaderedContentControl">
  <Setter Property="Template">
    <Setter.Value>
      <ControlTemplate TargetType="{x:Type HeaderedContentControl}">
        <StackPanel>
          <Grid>
            <Rectangle Stroke="{TemplateBinding Background}"/>
            <ContentPresenter ContentSource="Header"/>
          </Grid>
          <Grid>
            <Rectangle Fill="{TemplateBinding Background}"/>
            <ContentPresenter ContentSource="Content"/>
          </Grid>
        </StackPanel>
      </ControlTemplate>
    </Setter.Value>
  </Setter>
</Style>
