FrameworkElement.SetResourceReference Method

Searches for a resource with the specified name and sets up a resource reference to it for the specified property.

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

public void SetResourceReference(
	DependencyProperty dp,
	Object name
)

Parameters

dp
Type: System.Windows.DependencyProperty
The property to which the resource is bound.
name
Type: System.Object
The name of the resource.

A resource reference is similar to the use of a DynamicResource Markup Extension in markup. The resource reference creates an internal expression that supplies the value of the specified property on a run-time deferred basis. The expression will be re-evaluated whenever the resource dictionary indicates a changed value through internal events, or whenever the current element is reparented (a parent change would change the dictionary lookup path).
