You should call this method in a context such that late participants in property value determination are able to act on a property. For instance, bindings may not be active on a property unless all participant elements in the element tree are loaded and the asynchronous binding is propagated, and the binding source object is connected. Similarly, resources including all necessary theme dictionaries should be available.
