StaticResource, DynamicResource, x:Static – what’s all this about?

So, you know to write very complicated things in XAML code, but, really, do you know what’s the difference between static and dynamic resource? Do you know what’s really x:Static means? We’ll try today to understand differences and things we can do with this stuff. All those are markup extensions. Let’s start from the very beginning – MSDN

A markup extension can be implemented to provide values for properties in attribute syntax, properties in property element syntax, or both.

StaticResource – Provides a value for a XAML property by substituting the value of an already defined resource

DynamicResource - Provides a value for a XAML property by deferring that value to be a runtime reference to a resource. A dynamic resource reference forces a new lookup each time that such a resource is accessed.

I can not tell more clear then this statement. If you want to reuse something already exists – use StaticResource, if it’s changing – DynamicResource. So StaticResource is restrictive resource, when DynamicResource is not. So, other words, if you need only properties to be changed, use StaticResource, if whole object changing – use DynamicResource . The best example for this is following code

      <TextBlock Text="This is Active caption color" Background="{DynamicResource {x:Static SystemColors.HighlightBrushKey}}"/>
      <TextBlock Text="This is not Active caption color" Background="{DynamicResource {x:Static SystemColors.HighlightBrushKey}}">
          <SolidColorBrush x:Key="{x:Static SystemColors.HighlightBrushKey}" Color="Yellow" />
      <TextBlock Text="This is Active caption color" Background="{StaticResource {x:Static SystemColors.HighlightBrushKey}}"/>
      <TextBlock Text="This is also Active caption color" Background="{StaticResource {x:Static SystemColors.HighlightBrushKey}}">
          <SolidColorBrush x:Key="{x:Static SystemColors.HighlightBrushKey}" Color="Yellow" />


The result is following


As you can see, I completely change HighlightBrush object by using local resources. This works if the resource set as dynamic, but wont if static.

That’s the reason, that you can not bind to DynamicResource, only to StaticResource properties or method results. Data binding engine can not be in peace with changing objects.

So, what is x:Static? It’s XAML-defined Markup extension. There are some of them x:Type, x:Static x:Null and x:Array.

x:Static – Produces static values from value-type code entities that are not directly the type of a property’s value, but can be evaluated to that type

Other words – the exit point for your static methods, properties and singletons. Why there is not x:Dynamic? Because everything else is dynamic in WPF. So, if you have singleton or static properties and method results, you want to bind to – use this extension.

    That’s exacly what I’ve wrote "A dynamic resource reference forces a new lookup each time that such a resource is accessed" :)

  2. Aaron Says:

    I understand — and I think it’s a great idea — but DynamicResources don’t look up their values ‘everytime’. They are updated when the Resource changes.

  3. Tamir Khason Says:

    Hi, Aaron. I tried to write it "for dummies", really. This questions returns twice a day (at least :) )

  4. Aaron Says:

    Tamir — you’ve oversimplified things — and said something that isn’t clear.

    DynamicResources can only be set on DependencyProperties. They do defer their value substitution until runtime. If the value of the resource changes, they’ll be automatically updated, unlike StaticResources.
