LogicalTreeHelper.GetParent Method (DependencyObject)


Returns the parent object of the specified object by processing the logical tree.

Namespace:   System.Windows
Assembly:  PresentationFramework (in PresentationFramework.dll)

static member GetParent : 
        current:DependencyObject -> DependencyObject


Type: System.Windows.DependencyObject

The object to find the parent object for. This is expected to be either a FrameworkElement or a FrameworkContentElement.

Return Value

Type: System.Windows.DependencyObject

The requested parent object.

This method is merely a wrapper that gets the appropriate type version (FrameworkElement or FrameworkContentElement) of the FrameworkElement.Parent or FrameworkContentElement.Parent property; so unless you are unable to determine the current type, you might want to check the respective instance properties instead.
