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.
