FrameworkElement.SetBinding Method (DependencyProperty, BindingBase)
Attaches a binding to this element, based on the provided binding object.
Assembly: PresentationFramework (in PresentationFramework.dll)
member SetBinding : dp:DependencyProperty * binding:BindingBase -> BindingExpressionBase
- Type: System.Windows.DependencyProperty
Identifies the property where the binding should be established.
- Type: System.Windows.Data.BindingBase
Represents the specifics of the data binding.
Return ValueType: System.Windows.Data.BindingExpressionBase
Records the conditions of the binding. This return value can be useful for error checking.
This example shows how to create and set a Binding in code.
The FrameworkElement class and the FrameworkContentElement class both expose a SetBinding method. If you are binding an element that inherits either of these classes, you can call the SetBinding method directly.
The following example creates a class named, MyData, which contains a property named MyDataProperty.
The following example shows how to create a binding object to set the source of the binding. The example uses SetBinding to bind the Text property of myText, which is a TextBlock control, to MyDataProperty.
For the complete code sample, see Code-only Binding Sample.
Instead of calling SetBinding, you can use the SetBinding static method of the BindingOperations class. The following example, calls BindingOperations.SetBinding instead of FrameworkElement.SetBinding to bind myText to myDataProperty.
