The object value to set on the property where the markup extension provided value is evaluated.

serviceProvider was null, 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 null. 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.
