The following example queries various characteristics of a dependency property identifier, including the .
pm = dp.GetMetadata(dp.OwnerType) MetadataClass.Text = pm.GetType().Name TypeofPropertyValue.Text = dp.PropertyType.Name DefaultPropertyValue.Text = If((pm.DefaultValue IsNot Nothing), pm.DefaultValue.ToString(), "null") HasCoerceValue.Text = If((pm.CoerceValueCallback Is Nothing), "No", pm.CoerceValueCallback.Method.Name) HasPropertyChanged.Text = If((pm.PropertyChangedCallback Is Nothing), "No", pm.PropertyChangedCallback.Method.Name) [ReadOnly].Text = If((dp.ReadOnly), "Yes", "No")
|How to: Implement a Dependency Property||This example shows how to back a common language runtime (CLR) property with a DependencyProperty field, thus defining a dependency property. When you define your own properties and want them to support many aspects of Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF) functionality, including styles, data binding, inheritance, animation, and default values, you should implement them as a dependency property.|
