TypeExtension Constructor (String)
Assembly: System.Xaml (in System.Xaml.dll)
- Type: System.String
A string that identifies the type to make a reference to. This string uses the format prefix:className. prefix is the mapping prefix for a XAML namespace, and is only required to reference types that are not mapped to the default XAML namespace.
This value is not evaluated when you set it in the constructor. If the value is not null, the value will be initially accepted. The actual parsing and evaluation of the value is deferred until ProvideValue is called on this extension, when XAML is parsed and with available service contexts active. At this time the typeName is expected to be resolvable as a type within a XAML schema context, and that type is returned.
