DependencyProperty.GetMetadata Method (DependencyObjectType)

Returns the metadata for this dependency property as it exists on a specified type.

Namespace:  System.Windows
Assembly:  WindowsBase (in WindowsBase.dll)

public PropertyMetadata GetMetadata(
	DependencyObjectType dependencyObjectType


Type: System.Windows.DependencyObjectType

A specific object that records the dependency object type from which the dependency property metadata is desired.

Return Value

Type: System.Windows.PropertyMetadata
A property metadata object.

Specifying either the type or an object reference is necessary because the metadata of any given dependency property can vary from the original registration due either to AddOwner or OverrideMetadata calls that can refine the property metadata as it exists on a type.

The following example gets metadata for a dependency property based on its DependencyObjectType.

DependencyObjectType dt = unrelatedInstance.DependencyObjectType;
pm = UnrelatedStateControl.StateProperty.GetMetadata(dt);
