Silverlight 3 enables property binding to CLR objects and other UI components via XAML – UI to UI binding. It is useful in a lot of scenarios and saves time for both developers and designers.


Download source code


{Binding Value, ElementName=MySlider}

where Value is property of a CLR object and MySlider is the name of this object

Hope that helps!

    Is there supposed to be something in this article between the Example heading and the Download source code? Just checking because my screen shows a huge white space (Firefox browser). Just letting you know - keep up the good work.

    That's great, but what if the item you want to bind to is not anywhere your current FrameworkElement? The binding fails :(
    Anyways, it turns out, if you wrap your content in a ContentControl, the binding succeeds.
