Gets the type of the object that registered the dependency property with the property system, or added itself as owner of the property.

This value was provided during property registration. The owner will be either the original registering type in the case of a DependencyProperty identifier generated from a Register call, or the type that added itself as owner in the case of a DependencyProperty identifier generated from an AddOwner call.
The following example gets the owner type based on a dependency property identifier dp, and then gets metadata on the owner type for that same identifier. This operation is actually equivalent to getting DefaultMetadata on dp.
