	DependencyProperty dp,
	BindingBase binding
)

Parameters

This method is a convenience method for calling BindingOperations.SetBinding, which passes the current instance as the DependencyObject.

The following example sets a binding on a Paragraph element, by creating a new Binding and setting the source to a newly built DateTime object.


DateTime myDataObject = new DateTime();
Binding myBinding = new Binding();
myBinding.Source = myDataObject;
introParagraph.SetBinding(Paragraph.TagProperty, myBinding);
