Property Value


The owner type of the routed event.


This type can be any object type, not necessarily limited to DependencyObject. In cases of routed events that have owners added, this property will return the first declared owner.

The value of this property originates from the RegisterRoutedEvent method that defines a RoutedEvent. Specifically, the value of OwnerType is the ownerType parameter value that was passed to RegisterRoutedEvent.
