Gets an object in the Windows Phone object model by referencing the object's x:Name or Name attribute value.
Assembly: System.Windows (in System.Windows.dll)
FrameworkElement is the class that implements Name support for most other Windows Phone objects, such as Canvas, but TextElement is not a FrameworkElement. Therefore TextElement supports its own Name and FindName implementations so that you can still retrieve XAML-instantiated instances of TextElement classes such as Run at run time, and you can arbitrarily call FindName again on any Windows Phone object you retrieved from calling FindName previously. You can use the TextElement-defined to find a named element specified as a FrameworkElement Name,and vice versa. Because relies on all XAML being parsed for the Name attributes, you should not attempt to call until the XAML is loaded. There are limitations across XAML namescopes.
