DependencyProperty.OwnerType DependencyProperty.OwnerType DependencyProperty.OwnerType DependencyProperty.OwnerType Property

Definition

Gets the type of the object that registered the dependency property with the property system, or added itself as owner of the property.

public:
 property Type ^ OwnerType { Type ^ get(); };
public Type OwnerType { get; }
member this.OwnerType : Type
Public ReadOnly Property OwnerType As Type

Property Value

The type of the object that registered the property or added itself as owner of the property.

Examples

The following example gets the owner type based on a dependency property identifier dp, and then gets metadata on the owner type for that same identifier. This operation is actually equivalent to getting DefaultMetadata on dp.

pm = dp.GetMetadata(dp.OwnerType);
pm = dp.GetMetadata(dp.OwnerType)

Remarks

This value was provided during property registration. The owner will be either the original registering type in the case of a DependencyProperty identifier generated from a Register call, or the type that added itself as owner in the case of a DependencyProperty identifier generated from an AddOwner call.

The OwnerType on any given DependencyProperty is immutable, and cannot be null in a valid DependencyProperty.
