PropertyMetadata Class

[ This article is for Windows Phone 8 developers. If you’re developing for Windows 10, see the latest documentation. ]

Defines certain behavior aspects of a dependency property, including conditions it was registered with.


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

public class PropertyMetadata

The PropertyMetadata type exposes the following members.

Public methodPropertyMetadata(Object)Initializes a new instance of the PropertyMetadata class, using a property default value.
Public methodPropertyMetadata(PropertyChangedCallback)Initializes a new instance of the PropertyMetadata class, using a callback reference.
Public methodPropertyMetadata(Object, PropertyChangedCallback)Initializes a new instance of the PropertyMetadata class, using a property default value and callback reference.

Public propertyDefaultValueGets the default value for the dependency property.

Public methodEquals(Object)Determines whether the specified Object is equal to the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodFinalizeAllows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before the Object is reclaimed by garbage collection. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetHashCodeServes as a hash function for a particular type. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetTypeGets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodMemberwiseCloneCreates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodToStringReturns a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.)

In Windows Phone, there is no support for per-type property metadata. The metadata used for a dependency property is always the metadata that is applied by the initially registering and owning type (the type from which the Register is made).
