DependencyProperty.GetMetadata Method (Type)

Returns the metadata for this dependency property as it exists on a specified existing type.

Namespace:  System.Windows
Assembly:  WindowsBase (in WindowsBase.dll)
'Declaration
Public Function GetMetadata ( _
	forType As Type _
) As PropertyMetadata

Parameters

forType
Type: System.Type
The specific type from which to retrieve the dependency property metadata.

Return Value

Type: System.Windows.PropertyMetadata
A property metadata object.

Specifying either the type or an object reference to use as type is necessary because the metadata can vary from the original registration due either to AddOwner or OverrideMetadata calls that alter the metadata of the dependency property as it exists on a type.

The following example gets metadata for a dependency property based on its type. The type is obtained by using a typeof operator.


		pm = MyStateControl.StateProperty.GetMetadata(GetType(MyStateControl))
