The primary Object.
The secondary Object.
The CreateAssociation method creates an association between a primary and a secondary object. Once an association is created, a designer or other filtering mechanism can add properties that route to either object into the primary object's property set. When a property invocation is made against the primary object, the GetAssociation method will be called to resolve the actual object instance that is related to its type parameter.
A WeakReference is used to maintain the association between the primary and secondary object; therefore, this method does not prevent either object from being finalized and reclaimed by garbage collection.
