FindAncestor 3

Refers to the ancestor in the parent chain of the data-bound element. You can use this to bind to an ancestor of a specific type or its subclasses. This is the mode you use if you want to specify AncestorType and/or AncestorLevel.

PreviousData 0

Allows you to bind the previous data item (not that control that contains the data item) in the list of data items being displayed.

Self 2

Refers to the element on which you are setting the binding and allows you to bind one property of that element to another property on the same element.

TemplatedParent 1

Refers to the element to which the template (in which the data-bound element exists) is applied. This is similar to setting a TemplateBindingExtension and is only applicable if the Binding is within a template.
