DependencyPropertyChangedEventArgs DependencyPropertyChangedEventArgs DependencyPropertyChangedEventArgs DependencyPropertyChangedEventArgs Struct

Definition

Provides data for various property changed events. Typically these events report effective value changes in the value of a read-only dependency property. Another usage is as part of a PropertyChangedCallback implementation.

Examples

The following example uses the DependencyPropertyChangedEventArgs class in the context of a PropertyChangedCallback for a particular property of a custom class that also defines events. The callback takes the results of old and new values from the property system as communicated by DependencyPropertyChangedEventArgs, and repackages these into a different events arguments class RoutedPropertyChangedEventArgs<T>. The new arguments are then used as the data for a "ValueChanged" event defined by and raised by the custom class.

public static readonly DependencyProperty ValueProperty =
    DependencyProperty.Register(
        "Value", typeof(decimal), typeof(NumericUpDown),
        new FrameworkPropertyMetadata(MinValue, new PropertyChangedCallback(OnValueChanged),
                                      new CoerceValueCallback(CoerceValue)));

private static object CoerceValue(DependencyObject element, object value)
{
    decimal newValue = (decimal)value;

    newValue = Math.Max(MinValue, Math.Min(MaxValue, newValue));

    return newValue;
}

private static void OnValueChanged(DependencyObject obj, DependencyPropertyChangedEventArgs args)
{
    NumericUpDown control = (NumericUpDown)obj;

    RoutedPropertyChangedEventArgs<decimal> e = new RoutedPropertyChangedEventArgs<decimal>(
        (decimal)args.OldValue, (decimal)args.NewValue, ValueChangedEvent);
    control.OnValueChanged(e);
}
/// <summary>
/// Identifies the ValueChanged routed event.
/// </summary>
public static readonly RoutedEvent ValueChangedEvent = EventManager.RegisterRoutedEvent(
    "ValueChanged", RoutingStrategy.Bubble,
    typeof(RoutedPropertyChangedEventHandler<decimal>), typeof(NumericUpDown));

/// <summary>
/// Occurs when the Value property changes.
/// </summary>
public event RoutedPropertyChangedEventHandler<decimal> ValueChanged
{
    add { AddHandler(ValueChangedEvent, value); }
    remove { RemoveHandler(ValueChangedEvent, value); }
}
/// <summary>
/// Raises the ValueChanged event.
/// </summary>
/// <param name="args">Arguments associated with the ValueChanged event.</param>
protected virtual void OnValueChanged(RoutedPropertyChangedEventArgs<decimal> args)
{
    RaiseEvent(args);
}
Public Shared ReadOnly ValueProperty As DependencyProperty = DependencyProperty.Register("Value", GetType(Decimal), GetType(NumericUpDown), New FrameworkPropertyMetadata(MinValue, New PropertyChangedCallback(AddressOf OnValueChanged), New CoerceValueCallback(AddressOf CoerceValue)))

Private Shared Overloads Function CoerceValue(ByVal element As DependencyObject, ByVal value As Object) As Object
	Dim newValue As Decimal = CDec(value)

	newValue = Math.Max(MinValue, Math.Min(MaxValue, newValue))

	Return newValue
End Function

Private Shared Sub OnValueChanged(ByVal obj As DependencyObject, ByVal args As DependencyPropertyChangedEventArgs)
	Dim control As NumericUpDown = CType(obj, NumericUpDown)

	Dim e As New RoutedPropertyChangedEventArgs(Of Decimal)(CDec(args.OldValue), CDec(args.NewValue), ValueChangedEvent)
	control.OnValueChanged(e)
End Sub

Public Custom Event ValueChanged As RoutedPropertyChangedEventHandler(Of Decimal)

		MyBase.RemoveHandler(ValueChangedEvent, value)

	RaiseEvent(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As RoutedPropertyChangedEventArgs(Of Decimal))
	End RaiseEvent
End Event

Remarks

The events that use the DependencyPropertyChangedEventArgs class for event data, and the DependencyPropertyChangedEventHandler method implementations for handlers, generally follow the naming pattern Is*Changed, and are generally implemented as common language runtime (CLR) events without RoutedEvent backing (they are not routed events). Some class handling methods that "handle" otherwise unexposed events that report a state change through a property change, such as ButtonBase.OnIsPressedChanged, also use the DependencyPropertyChangedEventArgs class for event data.

The scenario for PropertyChangedCallback is to use the arguments to report old and new values that come from the property system evaluation of the property. A callback that processes old and new values might choose special handling depending on these values, such as choosing to not respond to value changes that are deemed insignificant.
