Property Value

Type Description
TemplateContext

A TemplateContext object that indicates the current Frame's context.

Remarks

A Frame is displayed via a Frame Template in a UI. All Templates are related to particular contexts. So, when a Frame is created, a context must be determined to apply a proper Template. All the contexts are defined by the TemplateContext instances. The following table lists all the context names:

Context

Templates

TemplateContext.ApplicationWindow

LightStyleMainForm

LightStyleMainRibbonForm

OutlookStyleMainRibbonForm

MainFormV2

MainRibbonFormV2

TemplateContext.View

DetailFormV2

DetailRibbonFormV2

TemplateContext.PopupWindow

PopupForm

TemplateContext.LookupControl

Note

Basically, contexts are only used in Windows Forms applications, to assign a Template to a Frame. In ASP.NET Web applications, another mechanism is applied. To learn more, refer to the Template Customization and ASP.NET Application Life Cycle topics.
