FrameworkContentElement.SetResourceReference(DependencyProperty, Object) Method

Definition

Searches for a resource with the specified name and sets up a resource reference to it for the specified property.

public:
 void SetResourceReference(System::Windows::DependencyProperty ^ dp, System::Object ^ name);
public void SetResourceReference (System.Windows.DependencyProperty dp, object name);
member this.SetResourceReference : System.Windows.DependencyProperty * obj -> unit
Public Sub SetResourceReference (dp As DependencyProperty, name As Object)

Parameters

dp
DependencyProperty

The property to which the resource is bound.

name
Object

The name of the resource.

Remarks

A resource reference is similar to the use of a DynamicResource Markup Extension in markup. The resource reference creates an internal expression that supplies the value of the specified property on a run-time deferred basis. The expression will be re-evaluated whenever the resource dictionary indicates a changed value through internal events, or whenever the current element is reparented (a parent change would change the dictionary lookup path).
