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

public:
BindingExpression^ SetBinding(
	DependencyProperty^ dp,
	String^ path
)

Parameters

dp
Type: System.Windows::DependencyProperty^

Identifies the destination property where the binding should be established.

path
Type: System::String^

The source property name or the path to the property used for the binding.

Return Value

Type: System.Windows.Data::BindingExpression^

Records the conditions of the binding. This return value can be useful for error checking.

This method is a convenience method for calling BindingOperations::SetBinding, which passes the current instance as the DependencyObject, and creates a new Binding based on the provided path parameter. This signature is more convenient if you are establishing a simple default binding. If you need to specify any binding properties to non-default conditions, or want to use a MultiBinding or PriorityBinding,you should use the SetBinding(DependencyProperty^, BindingBase^) signature.

The following example sets a binding using a specific path.
