PropertyValue represents the value portion of a property that typically has a string name, and some value. There are multiple properties in a property set, and each property potentially has a different value type, so from a collection standpoint the collection is mixed, not strongly typed. The PropertySet class and the IPropertySet interface are existing interfaces or implementations that use this model and use a PropertyValue as the value part of a key-value pair. IPropertySet is the type of various Windows Runtime properties where the goal is to provide your app with a property bag of properties that are conceptually related in their origin, but each property might (and often does) use a different value type.
In addition to representing the value itself, PropertyValue defines utility methods that populate a PropertyValue instance. Calling these utility methods from app code is uncommon. The methods create a boxed value, and in this aspect a PropertyValue instance functions similarly to the VARIANT concept from Component Object Model (COM). Each method has a matched method that creates an array of values as opposed to a single value.
