PropertyDefinition Class

Supports a markup technique of defining properties of a class in declarative XAML.


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

public class PropertyDefinition : MemberDefinition

The PropertyDefinition type exposes the following members.

Public methodPropertyDefinitionInitializes a new instance of the PropertyDefinition class.

Public propertyAttributesGets a list of associated CLR attributes.
Public propertyModifierGets or sets the access level of the defined property.
Public propertyNameGets or sets the name of the property to define. (Overrides MemberDefinition.Name.)
Public propertyTypeGets or sets the XamlType of the property 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.)

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.
