PropertyPath Class

Definition

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.

Equivalent WinUI class: Microsoft.UI.Xaml.PropertyPath.

Remarks

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

  • Get the Path from an existing binding (@"Windows.UI.Xaml.Data.Binding.Path?text=Binding.Path" ).
  • Use that string value to construct a new PropertyPath.
  • Create a new Binding. Use the new PropertyPath for its Binding.Path (and probably adjust some other properties too).
  • Apply the new Binding to a different object-property combination, using SetBinding.

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.

Constructors

PropertyPath(String)

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

Equivalent WinUI constructor: Microsoft.UI.Xaml.PropertyPath.PropertyPath.

Properties

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.

Equivalent WinUI property: Microsoft.UI.Xaml.DependencyObject.Dispatcher.

(Inherited from DependencyObject)
Path

Gets the path value held by this PropertyPath.

Equivalent WinUI property: Microsoft.UI.Xaml.PropertyPath.Path.

Methods

ClearValue(DependencyProperty)

Clears the local value of a dependency property.

Equivalent WinUI method: Microsoft.UI.Xaml.DependencyObject.ClearValue.

(Inherited from DependencyObject)
GetAnimationBaseValue(DependencyProperty)

Returns any base value established for a dependency property, which would apply in cases where an animation is not active.

Equivalent WinUI method: Microsoft.UI.Xaml.DependencyObject.GetAnimationBaseValue.

(Inherited from DependencyObject)
GetValue(DependencyProperty)

Returns the current effective value of a dependency property from a DependencyObject.

Equivalent WinUI method: Microsoft.UI.Xaml.DependencyObject.GetValue.

(Inherited from DependencyObject)
ReadLocalValue(DependencyProperty)

Returns the local value of a dependency property, if a local value is set.

Equivalent WinUI method: Microsoft.UI.Xaml.DependencyObject.ReadLocalValue.

(Inherited from DependencyObject)
RegisterPropertyChangedCallback(DependencyProperty, DependencyPropertyChangedCallback)

Registers a notification function for listening to changes to a specific DependencyProperty on this DependencyObject instance.

Equivalent WinUI method: Microsoft.UI.Xaml.DependencyObject.RegisterPropertyChangedCallback.

(Inherited from DependencyObject)
SetValue(DependencyProperty, Object)

Sets the local value of a dependency property on a DependencyObject.

Equivalent WinUI method: Microsoft.UI.Xaml.DependencyObject.SetValue.

(Inherited from DependencyObject)
UnregisterPropertyChangedCallback(DependencyProperty, Int64)

Cancels a change notification that was previously registered by calling RegisterPropertyChangedCallback.

Equivalent WinUI method: Microsoft.UI.Xaml.DependencyObject.UnregisterPropertyChangedCallback.
