DependencyObject Constructor

Initializes a new instance of the DependencyObject class.

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

protected DependencyObject()

This constructor exists so that DependencyObject can be used as an extension point and base class. Typically you would use a class such as Control as a base class instead, rather than DependencyObject, but for certain advanced scenarios extending DependencyObject is more appropriate.
