Public methodFrameworkElementFactory()Initializes a new instance of the FrameworkElementFactory class.
Public methodFrameworkElementFactory(String)Initializes a new instance of the FrameworkElementFactory class with the specified text to produce.
Public methodFrameworkElementFactory(Type)Initializes a new instance of the FrameworkElementFactory class with the specified Type.
Public methodFrameworkElementFactory(Type, String)Initializes a new instance of the FrameworkElementFactory class with the specified Type and name.

Public propertyFirstChildGets the first child factory.
Public propertyIsSealedGets a value that indicates whether this object is in an immutable state.
Public propertyNameGets or sets the name of a template item.
Public propertyNextSiblingGets the next sibling factory.
Public propertyParentGets the parent FrameworkElementFactory.
Public propertyTextGets or sets the text string to produce.
Public propertyTypeGets or sets the type of the objects this factory produces.

Public methodAddHandler(RoutedEvent, Delegate)Adds an event handler for the given routed event to the instances created by this factory.
Public methodAddHandler(RoutedEvent, Delegate, Boolean)Adds an event handler for the given routed event to the instances created by this factory, with the option of having the provided handler be invoked even in cases of routed events that had already been marked as handled by another element along the route.
Public methodAppendChildAdds a child factory to this factory.
Public methodEquals(Object)Determines whether the specified Object is equal to the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodFinalizeAllows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before it is reclaimed by garbage collection. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetHashCodeServes as a hash function for a particular type. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetTypeGets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodMemberwiseCloneCreates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodRemoveHandlerRemoves an event handler from the given routed event. This applies to the instances created by this factory.
Public methodSetBindingSets up data binding on a property.
Public methodSetResourceReferenceSet up a dynamic resource reference on a child property.
Public methodSetValueSets the value of a dependency property.

This class is a deprecated way to programmatically create templates, which are subclasses of FrameworkTemplate such as ControlTemplate or DataTemplate; not all of the template functionality is available when you create a template using this class. The recommended way to programmatically create a template is to load XAML from a string or a memory stream using the Load method of the XamlReader class.
