FrameworkElement.InheritanceBehavior Property

Updated: October 2010

Gets or sets the scope limits for property value inheritance, a resource key lookup, and a RelativeSource FindAncestor lookup.

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

protected internal InheritanceBehavior InheritanceBehavior { get; set; }
You cannot set this property in XAML.

Property Value

Type: System.Windows.InheritanceBehavior
A value of the enumeration. The default is Default.

Certain boundaries in the element tree set InheritanceBehavior to deliberately limit the scope of inheritance behavior, to a force resource lookup to check the application resources, or to prevent a RelativeSource FindAncestor lookup from querying the current element or any further. A RelativeSource FindAncestor lookup occurs when a binding uses a RelativeSource that has its Mode property set to the RelativeSourceMode.FindAncestor value.

If you want your derived class to set this property, you should do so within the static constructor or in other initialization routines.

Windows 7, Windows Vista, Windows XP SP2, Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows Server 2008, Windows Server 2003
