RoutedPropertyChangedEventHandler<T> Delegate


Represents methods that will handle various routed events that track property value changes.

generic <typename T>
public delegate void RoutedPropertyChangedEventHandler(System::Object ^ sender, RoutedPropertyChangedEventArgs<T> ^ e);
public delegate void RoutedPropertyChangedEventHandler<T>(object sender, RoutedPropertyChangedEventArgs<T> e);
type RoutedPropertyChangedEventHandler<'T> = delegate of obj * RoutedPropertyChangedEventArgs<'T> -> unit
Public Delegate Sub RoutedPropertyChangedEventHandler(Of T)(sender As Object, e As RoutedPropertyChangedEventArgs(Of T))

Type Parameters


The type of the property value where changes in value are reported.



The object where the event handler is attached.


The event data. Specific event definitions will constrain RoutedPropertyChangedEventArgs<T> to a type, with the type parameter of the constraint matching the type parameter constraint of a delegate implementation.


The following example defines and attaches a handler method for the ValueChanged event.

The handler is based on RoutedPropertyChangedEventHandler<T>, and is defined in the second segment of the code example, with the type parameter of the generic constrained to Double.

Slider childrenCountSlider = (Slider)LogicalTreeHelper.FindLogicalNode(myWindow, "ChildrenCountSlider");
childrenCountSlider.ValueChanged += new RoutedPropertyChangedEventHandler<double>(OnChildrenCountChanged);
Dim childrenCountSlider As Slider = CType(LogicalTreeHelper.FindLogicalNode(myWindow, "ChildrenCountSlider"), Slider)
AddHandler childrenCountSlider.ValueChanged, AddressOf OnChildrenCountChanged
private void OnChildrenCountChanged(object sender, RoutedPropertyChangedEventArgs<double> e)
    int childrenCount = (int)Math.Floor(e.NewValue + 0.5);

    //  Update the children count...
    AutoIndexingGrid g = (AutoIndexingGrid)LogicalTreeHelper.FindLogicalNode(myWindow, "TargetGrid");
    while (g.Children.Count < childrenCount)
        Control c = new Control();
        c.Style = (Style)c.FindResource("ImageWithBorder");
    while (g.Children.Count > childrenCount)
        g.Children.Remove(g.Children[g.Children.Count - 1]);

    //  Update TextBlock element displaying the count...
    TextBlock t = (TextBlock)LogicalTreeHelper.FindLogicalNode(myWindow, "ChildrenCountDisplay");
    t.Text = childrenCount.ToString();
Private Sub OnChildrenCountChanged(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As RoutedPropertyChangedEventArgs(Of Double))
    Dim childrenCount As Integer = CInt(Fix(Math.Floor(e.NewValue + 0.5)))

    '  Update the children count...
    Dim g As AutoIndexingGrid = CType(LogicalTreeHelper.FindLogicalNode(myWindow, "TargetGrid"), AutoIndexingGrid)
    Do While g.Children.Count < childrenCount
        Dim c As New Control()
        c.Style = CType(c.FindResource("ImageWithBorder"), Style)
    Do While g.Children.Count > childrenCount
        g.Children.Remove(g.Children(g.Children.Count - 1))

    '  Update TextBlock element displaying the count...
    Dim t As TextBlock = CType(LogicalTreeHelper.FindLogicalNode(myWindow, "ChildrenCountDisplay"), TextBlock)
    t.Text = childrenCount.ToString()
End Sub

This particular example does not use the routed-event characteristic of the event; the event is handled on the same element that it is raised on. This is not always the case. For a routed event, it is possible that the source of the event is a different object than the object where the handler is attached.


Examples of events that use type-constrained delegates based on RoutedPropertyChangedEventHandler<T> include TreeView.SelectedItemChanged and RangeBase.ValueChanged.

Extension Methods


Gets an object that represents the method represented by the specified delegate.
