	DependencyProperty^ dependencyProperty
)
You cannot use methods in XAML.

Parameters

dependencyObject
Type: System.Windows::DependencyObject

The element that contains the dependencyProperty to report information for.

dependencyProperty
Type: System.Windows::DependencyProperty

The identifier for the dependency property to report information for.

Return Value

Type: System.Windows::ValueSource
A ValueSource structure that reports the specific information.

You should call this method in a context such that late participants in property value determination are able to act on a property. For instance, bindings may not be active on a property unless all participant elements in the element tree are loaded and the asynchronous binding is propagated, and the binding source object is connected. Similarly, resources including all necessary theme dictionaries should be available.
