Provides an extension of PropertyDescriptor that accounts for the additional property characteristics of a dependency property.
Assembly: WindowsBase (in WindowsBase.dll)
This class is primarily used by designer applications. These applications may need to report the dependency property characteristics through property windows or other tools used for editing property values.
In order to check a specific property to determine whether it has available to serve as a PropertyDescriptor, call either DependencyPropertyDescriptor.FromProperty(PropertyDescriptor), or DependencyPropertyDescriptor.FromName. If either method returns null, then the property is not a dependency property. If the method returns a valid , then the property is a dependency property.
