FrameworkElement.SetBinding Method (DependencyProperty, BindingBase)
Attaches a binding to this element, based on the provided binding object.
Assembly: PresentationFramework (in PresentationFramework.dll)
'Declaration Public Function SetBinding ( _ dp As DependencyProperty, _ binding As BindingBase _ ) As BindingExpressionBase 'Usage Dim instance As FrameworkElement Dim dp As DependencyProperty Dim binding As BindingBase Dim returnValue As BindingExpressionBase returnValue = instance.SetBinding(dp, _ binding)
- Type: System.Windows.DependencyProperty
Identifies the property where the binding should be established.
- Type: System.Windows.Data.BindingBase
Represents the specifics of the data binding.
Return ValueType: System.Windows.Data.BindingExpressionBase

This example shows how to create and set a Binding in code.
The FrameworkElement class and the FrameworkContentElement class both expose a SetBinding method. If you are binding an element that inherit either of those classes, you can call the SetBinding method directly, as in following example. In this example, myDataObject is an instance of MyData class and myBinding is the source Binding object. MyData class is a defined class that contains a string property named MyDataProperty. The following example shows how to bind the text content of mytext, an instance of TextBlock, to MyDataProperty.
For the complete code sample, see Creating a Binding in Code Sample.
Alternatively, you can use the SetBinding method of the BindingOperations class. In the following example, myNewBindDef is a Binding object that describes the binding. The binding target is myDateText, an instance of the TextBlock class.
