Namespace:  System.Windows
Assembly:  WindowsBase (in WindowsBase.dll)

public Type PropertyType { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.Type
The Type of the property value.

This property reports the type of the property's value as declared by the original property registration, through the propertyType parameter. Similar to the Name, the property type of a dependency property is immutable after registration.

The following example queries various characteristics of a dependency property identifier, including the PropertyType. The type name string of the PropertyType is obtained from the returned Type.

pm = dp.GetMetadata(dp.OwnerType);
MetadataClass.Text = pm.GetType().Name;
TypeofPropertyValue.Text = dp.PropertyType.Name;
DefaultPropertyValue.Text = (pm.DefaultValue!=null) ? pm.DefaultValue.ToString() : "null";
HasCoerceValue.Text = (pm.CoerceValueCallback == null) ? "No" : pm.CoerceValueCallback.Method.Name;
HasPropertyChanged.Text = (pm.PropertyChangedCallback == null) ? "No" : pm.PropertyChangedCallback.Method.Name;
ReadOnly.Text = (dp.ReadOnly) ? "Yes" : "No";
