DependencyObject.SetBinding(DependencyProperty, ActivityBind) Method


Sets the ActivityBind for the specified DependencyProperty.

 void SetBinding(System::Workflow::ComponentModel::DependencyProperty ^ dependencyProperty, System::Workflow::ComponentModel::ActivityBind ^ bind);
public void SetBinding (System.Workflow.ComponentModel.DependencyProperty dependencyProperty, System.Workflow.ComponentModel.ActivityBind bind);
member this.SetBinding : System.Workflow.ComponentModel.DependencyProperty * System.Workflow.ComponentModel.ActivityBind -> unit
Public Sub SetBinding (dependencyProperty As DependencyProperty, bind As ActivityBind)



The DependencyProperty.


The ActivityBind to set to.


Either of the arguments is a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic).

The PropertyMetadata associated with the DependencyProperty is read-only, is metadata, or is not bindable.

This instance is not in DesignMode.


The following code shows how to create activities and add them as children to a composite activity and includes setting the CanModifyActivities permission for this type.

In addition, the use of the SetBinding method is illustrated.

This code example is part of the Throw SDK sample and is from the ThrowWorkFlow.cs file. For more information, see Using Throw.

this.Delay.Name = "Delay";
this.Delay.TimeoutDuration = System.TimeSpan.Parse("00:00:05");
Me.Delay.Name = "Delay"
Me.Delay.TimeoutDuration = System.TimeSpan.Parse("00:00:05")


SetValue sets the value directly to the DependencyProperty. Similarly, AddHandler adds a handler directly to properties of type event.

These methods are exclusive when they are called for the same property. If SetBinding is called, then the values previously set using SetValue (AddHandler in events) are disregarded. The same is true the other way around: SetValue (AddHandler) resets the binding assigned with SetBinding.
