DependencyObjectType.FromSystemType Method

Returns a DependencyObjectType that represents a given system (CLR) type.

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

public static DependencyObjectType FromSystemType(
	Type systemType
)

Parameters

systemType
Type: System.Type
The system (CLR) type to convert.

Return Value

Type: System.Windows.DependencyObjectType
A DependencyObjectType that represents the system (CLR) type.

Each DependencyObject maintains a DependencyObjectType property that returns a DependencyObjectType, but this requires having a particular DependencyObject instance. You can use this static utility method if you do not yet have a DependencyObject instance and require a DependencyObjectType.

The following example calls FromSystemType , creating a DependencyObjectType based on the type of the Window class.


DependencyObjectType dt =
    DependencyObjectType.FromSystemType(typeof(Window));
