DependencyPropertyDescriptor Members

Provides an extension of PropertyDescriptor that accounts for the additional property characteristics of a dependency property.

The DependencyPropertyDescriptor type exposes the following members.

Public method AddValueChanged Enables other objects to be notified when this property changes. (Overrides PropertyDescriptor.AddValueChanged(Object, EventHandler).)
Public method CanResetValue Returns whether resetting an object changes its value. (Overrides PropertyDescriptor.CanResetValue(Object).)
Protected method CreateAttributeCollection Creates a collection of attributes using the array of attributes passed to the constructor. (Inherited from MemberDescriptor.)
Protected method CreateInstance Creates an instance of the specified type. (Inherited from PropertyDescriptor.)
Public method Equals Compares two DependencyPropertyDescriptor instances for equality. (Overrides PropertyDescriptor.Equals(Object).)
Protected method FillAttributes Adds the attributes of the PropertyDescriptor to the specified list of attributes in the parent class. (Inherited from PropertyDescriptor.)
Protected method Finalize Allows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before it is reclaimed by garbage collection. (Inherited from Object.)
Public method Static member FromName Returns a DependencyPropertyDescriptor for a provided property name.
Public method Static member FromProperty Overloaded. Returns a DependencyPropertyDescriptor based either on a provided PropertyDescriptor or a provided type, depending on the signature used.
Public method GetChildProperties Overloaded. Returns a PropertyDescriptorCollection.
Public method GetEditor Gets an editor of the specified type. (Overrides PropertyDescriptor.GetEditor(Type).)
Public method GetHashCode Returns the hash code for this DependencyPropertyDescriptor. (Overrides PropertyDescriptor.GetHashCode().)
Protected method GetInvocationTarget This method returns the object that should be used during invocation of members. (Inherited from PropertyDescriptor.)
Public method GetType Gets the type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected method GetTypeFromName Returns a type using its name. (Inherited from PropertyDescriptor.)
Public method GetValue Resturns the current value of the property on a component. (Overrides PropertyDescriptor.GetValue(Object).)
Protected method GetValueChangedHandler Retrieves the current set of ValueChanged event handlers for a specific component (Inherited from PropertyDescriptor.)
Protected method MemberwiseClone Creates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected method OnValueChanged Raises the ValueChanged event that you implemented. (Inherited from PropertyDescriptor.)
Public method RemoveValueChanged Enables other objects to be notified when this property changes. (Overrides PropertyDescriptor.RemoveValueChanged(Object, EventHandler).)
Public method ResetValue Resets the value for this property of the component to the default value. (Overrides PropertyDescriptor.ResetValue(Object).)
Public method SetValue Sets the value of the component to a different value. (Overrides PropertyDescriptor.SetValue(Object, Object).)
Public method ShouldSerializeValue Indicates whether the value of this property needs to be persisted by serialization processes. (Overrides PropertyDescriptor.ShouldSerializeValue(Object).)
Public method ToString Converts the value of this instance to its equivalent string representation. (Overrides Object.ToString().)

Protected property AttributeArray Gets or sets an array of attributes. (Inherited from MemberDescriptor.)
Public property Attributes Gets the collection of attributes for this member. (Overrides MemberDescriptor.Attributes.)
Public property Category Gets the name of the category that the member belongs to, as specified in the CategoryAttribute. (Overrides MemberDescriptor.Category.)
Public property ComponentType Gets the type of the component this property is bound to. (Overrides PropertyDescriptor.ComponentType.)
Public property Converter Gets the type converter for this property. (Overrides PropertyDescriptor.Converter.)
Public property DependencyProperty Returns the dependency property identifier.
Public property Description Gets the description of the member, as specified in the DescriptionAttribute. (Overrides MemberDescriptor.Description.)
Public property DesignerCoerceValueCallback Gets or sets a callback that designers use to modify the effective value of a dependency property before the dependency property value is stored in the dependency property engine.
Public property DesignTimeOnly Gets whether this member should be set only at design time, as specified in the DesignOnlyAttribute. (Overrides MemberDescriptor.DesignTimeOnly.)
Public property DisplayName Gets the name that can be displayed in a window, such as a Properties window. (Overrides MemberDescriptor.DisplayName.)
Public property IsAttached Gets a value that indicates whether the property is registered as an attached property and is being used through an attached usage.
Public property IsBrowsable Gets a value that indicates the value of the BrowsableAttribute on the property. (Overrides MemberDescriptor.IsBrowsable.)
Public property IsLocalizable Gets a value indicating whether this property should be localized, as specified in the LocalizableAttribute. (Overrides PropertyDescriptor.IsLocalizable.)
Public property IsReadOnly Gets a value indicating whether this property is read-only. (Overrides PropertyDescriptor.IsReadOnly.)
Public property Metadata Gets the metadata associated with the dependency property.
Public property Name Gets the name of the member. (Inherited from MemberDescriptor.)
Protected property NameHashCode Gets the hash code for the name of the member, as specified in GetHashCode. (Inherited from MemberDescriptor.)
Public property PropertyType Gets the represented Type of the dependency property. (Overrides PropertyDescriptor.PropertyType.)
Public property SerializationVisibility Gets a value indicating whether this property should be serialized, as specified in the DesignerSerializationVisibilityAttribute. (Inherited from PropertyDescriptor.)
Public property SupportsChangeEvents Indicates whether value change notifications for this property may originate from outside the property descriptor, such as from the component itself, or whether notifications will only originate from direct calls made to SetValue. (Overrides PropertyDescriptor.SupportsChangeEvents.)
