DependencyObject.SetValue Method

Sets the value of the DependencyProperty to the object.

Namespace:  System.Workflow.ComponentModel
Assembly:  System.Workflow.ComponentModel (in System.Workflow.ComponentModel.dll)

public void SetValue(
	DependencyProperty dependencyProperty,
	Object value
)

Parameters

dependencyProperty
Type: System.Workflow.ComponentModel.DependencyProperty

The DependencyProperty to be set.

value
Type: System.Object

The Object to set the value to.

SetBinding sets a binding for the dependency property.

SetValue sets a value directly to the DependencyProperty (similarly AddHandler adds a handler directly to properties of type event).

These methods are exclusive when they are called for the same property. If SetBinding is called, then the values previously set using SetValue (AddHandler in events) are disregarded. The same is true the other way around: SetValue (AddHandler) resets the binding assigned with SetBinding.

The following code shows how a dependency property is set within a dependency object using SetValue.

System.Workflow.ComponentModel.ActivityBind activityBind1 = new System.Workflow.ComponentModel.ActivityBind();
this.SampleReplicatorChildActivity1 = new SampleReplicatorChildActivity();
this.ReplicatorWork = new System.Workflow.Activities.ReplicatorActivity();
//  
// SampleReplicatorChildActivity1 
//  
this.SampleReplicatorChildActivity1.InstanceData = null;
this.SampleReplicatorChildActivity1.Name = "SampleReplicatorChildActivity1";
activityBind1.Name = "SimpleReplicatorWorkflow";
activityBind1.Path = "ChildData";
//  
// ReplicatorWork 
//  
this.ReplicatorWork.Activities.Add(this.SampleReplicatorChildActivity1);
this.ReplicatorWork.ExecutionType = System.Workflow.Activities.ExecutionType.Sequence;
this.ReplicatorWork.Name = "ReplicatorWork";
this.ReplicatorWork.ChildInitialized += new System.EventHandler<System.Workflow.Activities.ReplicatorChildEventArgs>(this.ChildInitializer);
this.ReplicatorWork.SetBinding(System.Workflow.Activities.ReplicatorActivity.InitialChildDataProperty, ((System.Workflow.ComponentModel.ActivityBind)(activityBind1)));
