Inherited properties


FrameworkTemplate has a ContentPropertyAttribute that indicates that its XAML content property is named "Template". FrameworkTemplate doesn't define a property of that name, nor do its derived types that have a practical usage (ControlTemplate, DataTemplate ). The content of a FrameworkTemplate is a root element that should be created when the template is applied to the object being templated, and isn't a conventional property in the object model. Content of a FrameworkTemplate is handled specially by the XAML parser when content is created from a template.

For more info on how to use templates, see ControlTemplate and Quickstart: Control templates.
