FrameworkElement.SetBinding Method (DependencyProperty, String)
Attaches a binding to this element, based on the provided source property name as a path qualification to the data source.
Assembly: PresentationFramework (in PresentationFramework.dll)
- Type: System.Windows.DependencyProperty
Identifies the destination property where the binding should be established.
- Type: System.String
The source property name or the path to the property used for the binding.
Return ValueType: System.Windows.Data.BindingExpression
Records the conditions of the binding. This return value can be useful for error checking.
This method is a convenience method for calling BindingOperations.SetBinding, which passes the current instance as the DependencyObject, and creates a new Binding based on the provided path parameter. This signature is more convenient if you are establishing a simple default binding. If you need to specify any binding properties to non-default conditions, or want to use a MultiBinding or PriorityBinding,you should use the SetBinding(DependencyProperty, BindingBase) signature.
