July 28, 2014

Namespace:  System.Windows.Data
Assembly:  System.Windows (in System.Windows.dll)
XMLNS for XAML: Not mapped to an xmlns.

public Object ConverterParameter { get; set; }
<Binding ConverterParameter="parameter"/>
<Binding ConverterParameter="parameterReference"/>

XAML Values


A parameter value that is either a primitive value, or can be type converted from a string.


A parameter value that is obtained as a reference to an already existing object. Typically the object is created in a ResourceDictionary and given a key, then referenced by using the StaticResource markup extension.

Property Value

Type: System.Object
A parameter to be passed to the Converter. This can be used in the conversion logic. The default is null.


The Binding has already been attached to a target element, and cannot be modified.

XAML Usage Notes

ConverterParameter can be set as a binding property through the Binding markup extension, which enables specifying an entire Binding as an attribute string.

Property element syntax to create an object element that fills a Binding.ConverterParameter property element is possible, but uncommon.
