public Type PropertyType { get; }
/** @property */
public Type get_PropertyType ()

Property Value

The Type of the property.

This is the type of the property's value as declared by the original property registration, as the propertyType parameter. Similar to the Name, the property type is immutable after registration.

The following example queries various characteristics of a dependency property identifier, including the PropertyType. The type name string of the PropertyType is obtained from the returned Type.

pm = dp.GetMetadata(dp.OwnerType);
MetadataClass.Text = pm.GetType().Name;
TypeofPropertyValue.Text = dp.PropertyType.Name;
DefaultPropertyValue.Text = (pm.DefaultValue!=null) ? pm.DefaultValue.ToString() : "null";
HasCoerceValue.Text = (pm.CoerceValueCallback == null) ? "No" : pm.CoerceValueCallback.Method.Name;
HasPropertyChanged.Text = (pm.PropertyChangedCallback == null) ? "No" : pm.PropertyChangedCallback.Method.Name;
ReadOnly.Text = (dp.ReadOnly) ? "Yes" : "No";
