is called on every Measure pass by the WPF framework-level layout system.
FrameworkElement derived classes can use the OnApplyTemplate class handler to be notified of cases where this method was called explicitly, or by the layout system. OnApplyTemplate is called after the template is completely generated and attached to the logical tree.
