NameScope.Contains Method

.NET Framework 4.6 and 4.5

Determines whether the collection contains a specified item.

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

public bool Contains(
	KeyValuePair<string, Object> item


Type: System.Collections.Generic.KeyValuePair<String, Object>

The item to find in the collection, specified as a KeyValuePair<TKey, TValue> (key is String, value is Object).

Return Value

Type: System.Boolean
true if the specified KeyValuePair<TKey, TValue> identifies an existing mapping in this NameScope . false if the specified KeyValuePair<TKey, TValue> does not exist in the current NameScope.




key is null.

Generally you are only interested in whether a name is already defined in the XAML namescope, and what object reference value it is mapped to is immaterial. For this scenario, you can call ContainsKey instead.
