Property ValueThe element whose FrameworkTemplate VisualTree caused this element to be created. This value is frequently a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic); see Remarks.
Templates are actually shared objects, where the contents of the template are created only once. Therefore, if you obtain an object reference to an element that came from a template, you may find that the apparent logical tree does not reach to the page root. In order to connect such a template reference to the page's logical tree, you should get the TemplatedParent value and continue to navigate that element tree as desired.
TemplatedParent will frequently be a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic) for common objects, because if you have obtained an object reference from out of a page in your application through typical means, that element probably was not created from a template. Cases where TemplatedParent might not be a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic) would include operations such as hit-testing, event handling for certain low-level input events, or working with enumerators, which may have returned elements that came from templates.
