BindingOperations Class

Provides static methods to manipulate bindings, including Binding, MultiBinding, and PriorityBinding objects.

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

public static class BindingOperations
You cannot directly create an instance of this class in XAML.

This class exposes a set of static methods that serve as helper operations for data bindings.

This example shows how to create and set a Binding in code.

The FrameworkElement class and the FrameworkContentElement class both expose a SetBinding method. If you are binding an element that inherit either of those classes, you can call the SetBinding method directly, as in following example. In this example, myDataObject is an instance of MyData class and myBinding is the source Binding object. MyData class is a defined class that contains a string property named MyDataProperty. The following example shows how to bind the text content of mytext, an instance of TextBlock, to MyDataProperty.

//make a new source
MyData myDataObject = new MyData(DateTime.Now);      
Binding myBinding = new Binding("MyDataProperty");
myBinding.Source = myDataObject;
myText.SetBinding(TextBlock.TextProperty, myBinding);

For the complete code sample, see Creating a Binding in Code Sample.

Alternatively, you can use the SetBinding method of the BindingOperations class. In the following example, myNewBindDef is a Binding object that describes the binding. The binding target is myDateText, an instance of the TextBlock class.

	// myDatetext is a TextBlock object that is the binding target object
        BindingOperations.SetBinding(myDateText, TextBlock.TextProperty, myNewBindDef);
        BindingOperations.SetBinding(myDateText, TextBlock.ForegroundProperty, myNewBindDef);
