DependencyPropertyChangedEventArgs.OldValue Property

Gets the value of the property before the change.

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

public function get OldValue () : Object
You cannot set this property in XAML.

Property Value

Type: System.Object
The property value before the change.

The type of the value provided should always be castable to the type of the dependency property being reported.

The following example uses the DependencyPropertyChangedEventArgs class in the context of a PropertyChangedCallback for a particular property of a custom class that also defines events. The callback takes the results of old and new values from the property system as communicated by DependencyPropertyChangedEventArgs, and repackages these into a different events arguments class RoutedPropertyChangedEventArgs(T). The new arguments are then used as the data for a "ValueChanged" event defined by and raised by the custom class.

public static readonly DependencyProperty ValueProperty =
    DependencyProperty.Register(
        "Value", typeof(decimal), typeof(NumericUpDown),
        new FrameworkPropertyMetadata(MinValue, new PropertyChangedCallback(OnValueChanged),
                                      new CoerceValueCallback(CoerceValue)));

private static object CoerceValue(DependencyObject element, object value)
{
    decimal newValue = (decimal)value;

    newValue = Math.Max(MinValue, Math.Min(MaxValue, newValue));

    return newValue;
}

private static void OnValueChanged(DependencyObject obj, DependencyPropertyChangedEventArgs args)
{
    NumericUpDown control = (NumericUpDown)obj;

    RoutedPropertyChangedEventArgs<decimal> e = new RoutedPropertyChangedEventArgs<decimal>(
        (decimal)args.OldValue, (decimal)args.NewValue, ValueChangedEvent);
    control.OnValueChanged(e);
}
/// <summary> 
/// Identifies the ValueChanged routed event. 
/// </summary> 
public static readonly RoutedEvent ValueChangedEvent = EventManager.RegisterRoutedEvent(
    "ValueChanged", RoutingStrategy.Bubble,
    typeof(RoutedPropertyChangedEventHandler<decimal>), typeof(NumericUpDown));

/// <summary> 
/// Occurs when the Value property changes. 
/// </summary> 
public event RoutedPropertyChangedEventHandler<decimal> ValueChanged
{
    add { AddHandler(ValueChangedEvent, value); }
    remove { RemoveHandler(ValueChangedEvent, value); }
}
/// <summary> 
/// Raises the ValueChanged event. 
/// </summary> 
/// <param name="args">Arguments associated with the ValueChanged event.</param>
protected virtual void OnValueChanged(RoutedPropertyChangedEventArgs<decimal> args)
{
    RaiseEvent(args);
}
