This class is a markup extension implementation. Markup extension classes exist mainly to provide infrastructure support for some aspect of the WPF XAML processor implementation, and the members exposed by a markup extension are not typically called from user code. This extension supports the StaticResource Markup Extension usage from XAML.


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