StaticResourceExtension::ProvideValue Method

Returns an object that should be set on the property where this extension is applied. For StaticResourceExtension, this is the object found in a resource dictionary, where the object to find is identified by the ResourceKey.

Namespace:  System.Windows
Assembly:  PresentationFramework (in PresentationFramework.dll)

virtual Object^ ProvideValue(
	IServiceProvider^ serviceProvider
) override


Type: System::IServiceProvider
Object that can provide services for the markup extension.

Return Value

Type: System::Object
The object value to set on the property where the markup extension provided value is evaluated.


serviceProvider was nullptr, or failed to implement a required service.

This method supports WPF XAML processor implementation, and is not intended to be called directly. The XAML processor implementation uses this method for proper handling of StaticResource extension values during object creation.

The property to be set can be identified by a PropertyInfo (standard property) or DependencyProperty (dependency property).

This implementation relies on XAML-related services based on the passed serviceProvider. It must not be nullptr. In the .NET Framework 4 implementation, the following are required services from service context:

If any of these services are missing, usage of the markup extension throws an exception.
