RelativeSource.AncestorLevel Property

Definition

Gets or sets the level of ancestor to look for, in FindAncestor mode. Use 1 to indicate the one nearest to the binding target element.

public:
 property int AncestorLevel { int get(); void set(int value); };
public int AncestorLevel { get; set; }
member this.AncestorLevel : int with get, set
Public Property AncestorLevel As Integer

Property Value

Int32

The ancestor level. Use 1 to indicate the one nearest to the binding target element.

Examples

The following returns the second ItemsControl encountered on the upward path starting at the target element of the binding.

Binding myBinding = new Binding();
// Returns the second ItemsControl encountered on the upward path
// starting at the target element of the binding
myBinding.RelativeSource = new RelativeSource(
    RelativeSourceMode.FindAncestor, typeof(ItemsControl), 2);
Dim myBinding As New Binding()
' Returns the second ItemsControl encountered on the upward path
' starting at the target element of the binding
myBinding.RelativeSource = New RelativeSource(RelativeSourceMode.FindAncestor, GetType(ItemsControl), 2)

Remarks

If the Mode property is not set explicitly, setting the AncestorType or the AncestorLevel property will implicitly lock the Mode property value to FindAncestor.
