'Declaration Public NotInheritable Class TextSearch _ Inherits DependencyObject
public sealed class TextSearch : DependencyObject
The TextSearch type exposes the following members.
|Dispatcher||Gets the Dispatcher this object is associated with. (Inherited from DependencyObject.)|
|TextPath||Gets or sets the name of the items' property that identifies each item in a control's collection.|
|CheckAccess||Determines whether the calling thread has access to this object. (Inherited from DependencyObject.)|
|ClearValue||Clears the local value of a dependency property. (Inherited from DependencyObject.)|
|Equals(Object)||Determines whether the specified Object is equal to the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)|
|Finalize||Allows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before the Object is reclaimed by garbage collection. (Inherited from Object.)|
|GetAnimationBaseValue||Returns any base value established for a Silverlight dependency property, which would apply in cases where an animation is not active. (Inherited from DependencyObject.)|
|GetHashCode||Serves as a hash function for a particular type. (Inherited from Object.)|
|GetTextPath||Returns the name of the property that identifies an item in the specified element's collection.|
|GetType||Gets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)|
|GetValue||Returns the current effective value of a dependency property from a DependencyObject. (Inherited from DependencyObject.)|
|MemberwiseClone||Creates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)|
|ReadLocalValue||Returns the local value of a dependency property, if a local value is set. (Inherited from DependencyObject.)|
|SetTextPath||Writes the TextPath attached property to the specified element.|
|SetValue||Sets the local value of a dependency property on a DependencyObject. (Inherited from DependencyObject.)|
|ToString||Returns a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.)|
Use this class to associate strings with ItemsControl items for search purposes. You can specify the property that identifies an item by setting the TextPath attached property. For example, if a ListBox contains a collection of Image objects, you can set the TextPath property to “Name”. Then if you set the Name value for one of the images to "dog", the user could select that image by typing “dog” in the ListBox. When the user types enough of the word to distinguish it from other items in the collection, the dog item is selected and displays in the ListBox.
In addition to using the TextPath property, the system will try to obtain a string for search purposes in the following order:
The DisplayMemberPath property if set and resolvable.
The Text property if the item is a ContentControl that contains a text control.
The search is always case-insensitive.
