StaticExtension Constructor (String)

Initializes a new instance of the StaticExtension class using the provided member string.

Namespace:  System.Windows.Markup
Assembly:  System.Xaml (in System.Xaml.dll)

new : 
        member:string -> StaticExtension


Type: System.String

A string that identifies the member to make a reference to. This string uses the format prefix:typeName.fieldOrPropertyNameprefix is the mapping prefix for a XAML namespace, and is only required to reference static values that are not mapped to the default XAML namespace.


member is a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic).

The member value is not evaluated when you set it. If the initial value is not a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic),then the value is accepted. The actual parsing and evaluation of the member value is deferred until ProvideValue is called when a XAML writer processes an extension usage. At that time, XAML schema context informs the type mapping and the value can be obtained.
