DependencyObject.SetValue Method (DependencyProperty, Object)


Sets the value of the DependencyProperty to the object.

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

Public Sub SetValue (
	dependencyProperty As DependencyProperty,
	value As Object


Type: System.Workflow.ComponentModel.DependencyProperty

The DependencyProperty to be set.

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.

Dim activityBind1 As New System.Workflow.ComponentModel.ActivityBind()
Me.SampleReplicatorChildActivity1 = New SampleReplicatorChildActivity()
Me.ReplicatorWork = New System.Workflow.Activities.ReplicatorActivity()
' SampleReplicatorChildActivity1
Me.SampleReplicatorChildActivity1.InstanceData = Nothing
Me.SampleReplicatorChildActivity1.Name = "SampleReplicatorChildActivity1"
activityBind1.Name = "SimpleReplicatorWorkflow"
activityBind1.Path = "ChildData"
' ReplicatorWork
Me.ReplicatorWork.ExecutionType = System.Workflow.Activities.ExecutionType.Sequence
Me.ReplicatorWork.Name = "ReplicatorWork"
AddHandler Me.ReplicatorWork.ChildInitialized, AddressOf Me.ChildInitializer
Me.ReplicatorWork.SetBinding(System.Workflow.Activities.ReplicatorActivity.InitialChildDataProperty, activityBind1)
