Setter Class

Represents a setter that applies a property value.

Namespace:  System.Windows
Assembly:  PresentationFramework (in PresentationFramework.dll)
XMLNS for XAML: http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml/presentation, http://schemas.microsoft.com/netfx/2007/xaml/presentation
public class Setter : SetterBase
ExceptionCondition
ArgumentNullException

The Property property cannot be null.

ArgumentException

If the specified Property is a read-only property.

ArgumentException

If the specified Value is set to UnsetValue.

Styles and the different types of triggers (classes that inherit from TriggerBase) use Setters to apply property values.

Note that you must specify both the Property and Value properties on a Setter for the setter to be meaningful. If one or both properties are not set, an exception will be thrown.

The following example defines a Style that will be applied to every TextBlock element. This Style applies values to several TextBlock properties with the use of Setters.

<Style TargetType="{x:Type TextBlock}">
  <Setter Property="FontFamily" Value="Segoe Black" />
  <Setter Property="HorizontalAlignment" Value="Center" />
  <Setter Property="FontSize" Value="12pt" />
  <Setter Property="Foreground" Value="#777777" />
</Style>

The following example shows a named Style available to Button controls. The Style defines a Trigger element that changes the Foreground property of a button when the IsPressed property is true.

<Style x:Key="Triggers" TargetType="Button">
    <Style.Triggers>
    <Trigger Property="IsPressed" Value="true">
        <Setter Property = "Foreground" Value="Green"/>
    </Trigger>
    </Style.Triggers>
</Style>
Any public static (Shared in Visual Basic) members of this type are thread safe. Any instance members are not guaranteed to be thread safe.
