BindingBase Class

Defines the common characteristics of the Binding, PriorityBinding, and MultiBinding classes.

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

[LocalizabilityAttribute(LocalizationCategory.None, Modifiability = Modifiability.Unmodifiable, 
	Readability = Readability.Unreadable)]
public abstract class BindingBase : MarkupExtension

The BindingBase type exposes the following members.

Public propertyBindingGroupNameGets or sets the name of the BindingGroup to which this binding belongs.
Public propertyFallbackValueGets or sets the value to use when the binding is unable to return a value.
Public propertyStringFormatGets or sets a string that specifies how to format the binding if it displays the bound value as a string.
Public propertyTargetNullValueGets or sets the value that is used in the target when the value of the source is null.

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 methodProvideValueReturns an object that should be set on the property where this binding and extension are applied. (Overrides MarkupExtension.ProvideValue(IServiceProvider).)
Public methodShouldSerializeFallbackValueReturns a value that indicates whether serialization processes should serialize the effective value of the FallbackValue property on instances of this class.
Public methodShouldSerializeTargetNullValueReturns a value that indicates whether the TargetNullValue property should be serialized.
Public methodToStringReturns a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.)

Because the BindingBase.ProvideValue method is sealed, a custom binding class that derives from BindingBase will not function correctly as a Extensible Application Markup Language (XAML) markup extension.
