PropertyPath PropertyPath PropertyPath PropertyPath Class


Implements a data structure for describing a property as a path below another property, or below an owning type. Property paths are used in data binding to objects.

The main reason you might work with a PropertyPath object is to clone existing binding properties and use them somewhere else:

Animation targeting also uses a property path concept, as documented in the Property-path syntax topic. However, animation targeting doesn't use PropertyPath as the underlying type, it expresses the paths as strings and uses strings for all related API calls.


PropertyPath(String) PropertyPath(String) PropertyPath(String) PropertyPath(String)

Initializes a new instance of the PropertyPath class based on a path string.

public : PropertyPath(Platform::String path)
PropertyPath(winrt::hstring path) const;
public PropertyPath(String path)
Public Sub New(path As String)
String String

The path string to construct with.

Dispatcher Dispatcher Dispatcher Dispatcher

Gets the CoreDispatcher that this object is associated with. The CoreDispatcher represents a facility that can access the DependencyObject on the UI thread even if the code is initiated by a non-UI thread.

Path Path Path Path

Gets the path value held by this PropertyPath.

public : Platform::String Path { get; }
winrt::hstring Path();
public string Path { get; }
Public ReadOnly Property Path As string
string string

The path value held by this PropertyPath.


To establish a value for Path, create a new PropertyPath using the PropertyPath(String) constructor.
