Property Value

Type: System.Xaml.XamlDirective

A XamlDirective for the Name directive from XAML.

A Name directive is used for identifiers of objects in markup. See [MS-XAML] Section 5.3.4.

Although this concept of Name is not completely consistent with the use that is specified in [MS-XAML], you can typically use the Name directive or the Name attribute to provide a conceptual connection between XAML objects in markup and the run-time representations that are created by XAML processing of the markup. This use depends on how specific frameworks implement their programming models to integrate XAML into their general object models. For more information, see x:Name Directive.
