ObjectDataProvider.ObjectInstance Property

Gets or sets the object used as the binding source.

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

public Object ObjectInstance { get; set; }
    <Object .../>

Property Value

Type: System.Object
The instance of the object constructed from ObjectType and ConstructorParameters, or the DataSourceProvider of which the Data is used as the ObjectInstance.


ObjectDataProvider is assigned both an ObjectType and an ObjectInstance; only one is allowed.

When ObjectType is set to a non-null value, the property holds the object of the type specified by ObjectType. If ObjectInstance is assigned by the user, the ObjectType property returns the type of the assigned object. If ObjectInstance is set to a DataSourceProvider, the ObjectDataProvider uses the Data of the assigned source provider as the effective ObjectInstance.

If DeferRefresh is used, ObjectInstance and Data will not update until Refresh is called.
