This class has no public API in .NET Framework 4.5 Beta. It provides a property value for Template. Its constructor is internal. There is an instantiation pathway, but it is complex. Instantiating a template relies on TemplateContentLoader, which requires a XamlReader representing a deferred reader instance, and a IXamlObjectWriterFactory service. Both these considerations are typically only relevant to those that are not using the default XAML for WPF processing behavior, which includes deferred content processing of templates as part of its infrastructure, and does not require the typical WPF application author to access the aforementioned APIs.
