You cannot use methods in XAML.

When the Dispatcher starts to shut down, the ShutdownStarted event is raised and HasShutdownStarted is set to true.

When the Dispatcher finishes shutting down, the ShutdownFinished event is raised and the HasShutdownFinished property is set to true.

Once the shutdown process begins, all pending work items in the queue are aborted.
