MemberDefinition Class

Provides the base class that is used for a markup technique of defining members of a class in declarative XAML.


Namespace:  System.Windows.Markup
Assembly:  System.Xaml (in System.Xaml.dll)

public abstract class MemberDefinition

The MemberDefinition type exposes the following members.

Protected methodMemberDefinitionInitializes a new instance of the MemberDefinition class.

Public propertyNameWhen implemented in a derived class, gets or sets the name of the member to define.

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 methodToStringReturns a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.)

The PropertyDefinition class is the relevant practical class that enables defining a property in declarative XAML.

Support for the overall feature of defining members of a class in declarative XAML is not self-contained in this API. This API only provides the markup definitions that make the declarations possible in XAML. The actual build task handling of how such XAML is interpreted is specific to individual build tasks and the frameworks or technologies that reference them.
