	Object name

	name : Object

Parameters

dp

The property to which the resource is bound.

name

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 runtime 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).
