XamlType.ContentWrappers Property

.NET Framework (current version)

The .NET API Reference documentation has a new home. Visit the .NET API Browser on docs.microsoft.com to see the new experience.

Gets the types that are used to wrap content for a content property when it is not a strict type match, such as strings in a strongly typed Collection<T>.

Namespace:   System.Xaml
Assembly:  System.Xaml (in System.Xaml.dll)

public IList<XamlType> ContentWrappers { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.Collections.Generic.IList<XamlType>

A read-only collection of possible content wrapper types; otherwise, null. See Remarks.

If there are no wrappers to account for type match loosening, this property is null.

Types that evaluate as CanAssignTo for a specific content type are not considered multiple types for purposes of ContentWrappers.

In the CLR binding for System.Xaml and XamlType, the XAML content wrapper type can be specified on a type as a ContentWrapperAttribute.

If you do not use the default internal CLR reflection technique for a XamlType, calls to this property can invoke LookupContentWrappers overrides on XamlType derived classes. For more information about return values and other behavior, see the documentation for LookupContentWrappers on this type.
