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

/** @property */
public XmlLanguage get_Language ()

/** @property */
public void set_Language (XmlLanguage value)

public function get Language () : XmlLanguage

public function set Language (value : XmlLanguage)

<object Language="XmlLanguage" .../>

Property Value

The language information for this element. The default value is an XmlLanguage with its IetfLanguageTag value set to the string "en-US".

Identifier field

LanguageProperty

Metadata properties set to true

Inherits

The string formats follow the RFC 3066 standard. For example, U.S. English is "en-US". For more information on the values and format, see XmlLanguage.

This dependency property inherits property values. If there are child elements without other values for Language established through local values or styles, the property system will set the value to be the Language value of the nearest ancestor element with this value assigned.

XML defines the general meaning of the xml:lang attribute. Language essentially exposes the meaning of this attribute as a dependency property. Language can be adjusted programmatically, and can participate in property system value inheritance in a way that parallels how the xml:lang attribute can inherit to child element scope in XML. If you set Language, that value becomes the xml:lang and overwrites any previous value. For more information, see xml:lang Handling in XAML.
