BaseValueSource Enumeration

Identifies the property system source of a particular dependency property value.

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

public enum BaseValueSource
<object property="enumerationMemberName" .../>

Member nameDescription
UnknownSource is not known. This is the default value.
DefaultSource is the default value, as defined by property metadata.
InheritedSource is a value through property value inheritance.
DefaultStyleSource is from a setter in the default style. The default style comes from the current theme.
DefaultStyleTriggerSource is from a trigger in the default style. The default style comes from the current theme.
StyleSource is from a style setter of a non-theme style.
TemplateTriggerSource is a trigger-based value in a template that is from a non-theme style.
StyleTriggerSource is a trigger-based value of a non-theme style.
ImplicitStyleReferenceSource is an implicit style reference (style was based on detected type or based type). This value is only returned for the Style property itself, not for properties that are set through setters or triggers of such a style.
ParentTemplateSource is based on a parent template being used by an element.
ParentTemplateTriggerSource is a trigger-based value from a parent template that created the element.
LocalSource is a locally set value.

This enumeration is used by a property within the ValueSource structure, which in turn is obtained by calling a GetValueSource method against a particular dependency property.

Each value of this enumeration indicates that a particular aspect of the overall WPF property system was responsible for the effective value determination of a certain dependency property value on a specific dependency object. To learn more about the WPF property system and the precedence at which each aspect of the property system operates, see Dependency Property Value Precedence.

The value Default is not the default value of the enumeration.
