FrameworkElement.SetBinding Method (DependencyProperty, BindingBase)

Attaches a binding to this element, based on the provided binding object.

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

member SetBinding : 
        dp:DependencyProperty * 
        binding:BindingBase -> BindingExpressionBase

Parameters

dp
Type: System.Windows.DependencyProperty

Identifies the property where the binding should be established.

This method is a convenience method for calling BindingOperations.SetBinding, which passes the current instance as the DependencyObject.

This example shows how to create and set a Binding in code.

The FrameworkElement class and the FrameworkContentElement class both expose a SetBinding method. If you are binding an element that inherits either of these classes, you can call the SetBinding method directly.

The following example creates a class named, MyData, which contains a property named MyDataProperty.

No code example is currently available or this language may not be supported.

The following example shows how to create a binding object to set the source of the binding. The example uses SetBinding to bind the Text property of myText, which is a TextBlock control, to MyDataProperty.

No code example is currently available or this language may not be supported.

For the complete code sample, see Code-only Binding Sample.

Instead of calling SetBinding, you can use the SetBinding static method of the BindingOperations class. The following example, calls BindingOperations.SetBinding instead of FrameworkElement.SetBinding to bind myText to myDataProperty.
