This method creates a new instance of a BindingExpressionBase and associates the instance with the given dependency property of the given object. This method is the way to attach a binding to an arbitrary DependencyObject that may not expose its own SetBinding method.

The following example shows how to use this method to set a binding. In this example, myNewBindDef is a Binding object that describes the binding. The binding target is myDateText, an instance of the TextBlock class.

// myDatetext is a TextBlock object that is the binding target object
       BindingOperations.SetBinding(myDateText, TextBlock.TextProperty, myNewBindDef);
       BindingOperations.SetBinding(myDateText, TextBlock.ForegroundProperty, myNewBindDef);
