CommandBindings Property

UIElement.CommandBindings Property


Gets a collection of CommandBinding objects associated with this element. A CommandBinding enables command handling for this element, and declares the linkage between a command, its events, and the handlers attached by this element.

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

public CommandBindingCollection CommandBindings { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.Windows.Input.CommandBindingCollection

The collection of all CommandBinding objects.
