DependencyObjectType represents a specific underlying system (CLR) Type of a DependencyObject. DependencyObjectType is essentially a wrapper for the (CLR) Type so that it can extend some of its capabilities.

This class has no public constructor. Instances of this class can only be obtained through properties on other objects (such as DependencyObject.DependencyObjectType), or through the static method FromSystemType.


Any public static (Shared in Visual Basic) members of this type are thread safe. Any instance members are not guaranteed to be thread safe.
