The BehaviorService to use.

Exception typeCondition


callParentBehavior is true, and behaviorService is a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic).

The parent behavior is the next behavior on the behavior stack maintained by the BehaviorService. If the callParentBehavior parameter is true, then the behaviorService parameter must not be a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic).

callParentBehavior indicates whether the base Behavior class should call the parent behavior, and then allow the BehaviorService select the correct parent behavior.
