Classes

Represents a declarative rule that applies visual states based on window properties.

Encapsulates the app and its available services.

DependencyObject is the immediate base class of many important UI-related classes, such as UIElement, Geometry, FrameworkTemplate, Style, and ResourceDictionary. For more info on how DependencyObject supports dependency properties, see Dependency properties overview.

Dependency properties provide support for value expressions, data binding, animation, and property change notification. For more info on how DependencyProperty values serve as identifiers for dependency properties, see Dependency properties overview.

Provides helper methods to evaluate or set Rect values. C# and Microsoft Visual Basic code should use members of Rect instead.

Defines a repository for XAML resources, such as styles, that your app uses. You define the resources in XAML and can then retrieve them in XAML using the {StaticResource} markup extension and {ThemeResource} markup extension s. You can also access resources with code, but that is less common.

Contains state information and event data associated with a routed event.

Applies a value to a property in a Style or a VisualState.

Represents the base class for value setters.

Represents a collection of objects that inherit from SetterBase.

Provides data related to the SizeChanged event.

Provides helper methods to evaluate or set Size values. C# and Microsoft Visual Basic code should use members of Size instead.

Represents a trigger that applies visual states conditionally.

Represents the base class for state triggers.

Contains property setters that can be shared between instances of a type. A Style is usually declared in a resources collection so that it can be shared and used for applying control templates and other styles.

Represents an attribute that is applied to the class definition and determines the TargetTypes of the properties that are of type Style.

Represents the path to a property on a target element.

Represents an attribute that is applied to the class definition to identify the types of the named parts that are used for templating.

Specifies that a control can be in a certain state and that a VisualState is expected in the control's ControlTemplate.

Provides helper methods to evaluate or set Thickness values. C# and Microsoft Visual Basic code should use members of Thickness instead.

Serves as the base class for BeginStoryboard. Not commonly used. See Remarks.

Represents a collection of BeginStoryboard objects.

Serves as the base class for EventTrigger. Not commonly used. See Remarks.

Represents a collection of EventTrigger objects.

UIElement is a base class for most of the Windows Runtime UI objects that have visual appearance and can process basic input as part of your app's user interface.

Provides data for the UnhandledException event.

Represents the visual appearance of a UI element when it is in a specific state. Visual states use Setters or a Storyboard to set UI properties within pages or control templates where the VisualState is defined.

Provides data for the CurrentStateChanging and CurrentStateChanged events.

Contains mutually exclusive VisualState objects and VisualTransition objects that are used to go from one state to another.

Manages visual states and the logic for transitions between visual states for controls. Also provides the attached property support for VisualStateManager.VisualStateGroups, which is how you define visual states in XAML for a control template.

Represents the visual behavior that occurs when the control transitions from one visual state to another.

Represents an application window.

Provides data for the OnWindowCreated method.
