How to implement control properties in WPF Applications

Hi Friend , Today i will explain about WPF control properties.This is basic part of any WPF Application.In our previous tutorial, I have already explained properties in c#. Here i will explain the control properties of WPF with the help of XAML Language.As you continue to explore WPF , you will see  that  the data binding layer ,animation graphics layers, and many other services are greatly simplified using this new methodologies.
There are various kinds of XAML property syntax .
  1. Dependent Property Syntax
  2. Property element syntax
  3. Attached Property syntax    
1.) Dependent Property Syntax:-
A dependent property allows WPF to compute a particular property's value based on other properties. A dependent property can be implemented to provide self contained validation,default values ,etc.
Example :- 

<Button Name="bnt" FontSize="18" Width="134" Height="29">Proceed</Button>
`Here you can see that the content value of the Button is indirectly set as a string data (ex. Proceed) within the <Button> XAML scope.
    We can set this string value to the content property of the control as given below:-

<Button Name="bnt" FontSize="18" Width="134" Height="29" Content="Proceed"/>

Note :- Any property concepts are basically used to make coding(c#,vb,XAML) easy. 

2.) Property Element Syntax:-
we generally know,some properties on a given control require more than simple string data.This property can be set on any Brush type found within the wpf APPs .

<Button Name="bnt" FontSize="18" Width="139" Height="34" Background="Red">Submit Me</Button>
Description :- 
Here you can see that the string value assigned to properties requiring a Brush derived type ()such as Background) map directly to a property on the type.We can use other syntax in which we can pass in start up values to the type.For this we use property element syntax as given below:-

<Button Name="bnt" FontSize="18" Width="139" Height="34" Content="Submit Me">
                <LinearGradientBrush StartPoint="0,0" EndPoint="1.1">
                    <GradientStop Color="Red" Offset="0"/>
                    <GradientStop Color="Yellow" Offset="0.2"/>
                    <GradientStop Color="Green" Offset="0.4"/>
                    <GradientStop Color="Blue" Offset="1"/>


Description : -
Here we are using the <Button.Background> property to specify the look and feel Linear Gradient Brush element

3.)  Attached Property Syntax:-
In Attached property syntax ,child element can store unique values of a property that is actually defined in a parent element.
Example :-

  <CheckBox DockPanel.Dock="Left">Remember Me</CheckBox>

In above example,tha child element <CheckBox> element is getting the Dock Property of its parent element <DockPanel> . You can easily know the concepts of child and parent element by below c# example.

private void bnt_Click(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e)
            DockPanel my_dock = new DockPanel();
            CheckBox box = new CheckBox();
            box.Content = "Remember Me";
            DockPanel.SetDock(box, Dock.Left);

  • In this c# codes ,the parent type has define a method with a specific signature.
  • You can use above three property concepts in your new wpf application.
