Property Value

The value validation callback for this dependency property, as provided for the validateValueCallback parameter in the original dependency property registration.

This property will contain a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic) for any dependency property with no registered validation callback.

Validate value callbacks must act in a static sense: validation applied through the callback cannot determine whether the value is valid for any given instance, it can only determine whether any such instance should or should not accept the provided value as valid. If you need to perform validation that relies on knowing the values of other dependency properties on a particular instance, use a CoerceValueCallback instead, which is registered as part of a dependency property's metadata rather than directly within the dependency property identifier. For details, see Dependency Property Callbacks and Validation.
