I have created a datatemplate in WPF and I would like to call it in C# how can I do this?  I have attempted a couple ways like
DataTemplate dt = System.Windows.Application.Current.Resources[datatemplate] as DataTemplate;

and while i try to build it says datatemplate is not in the current context.
thanks


WPF Code
 
<Window.Resources>
         <DataTemplate x:Key="lbl" x:Name="datatemplate">
 
                        <!-- Grid 2x2 with black border  -->
                        <Border BorderBrush="Black">
 
                            <Grid>
 
                                <Grid.ColumnDefinitions>
                                    <ColumnDefinition />
                                    <ColumnDefinition />
                                </Grid.ColumnDefinitions>
 
                                <Grid.RowDefinitions>
                                    <RowDefinition />
                                    <RowDefinition />
                                </Grid.RowDefinitions>
 
                                <!-- x-coordinate -->
                                <TextBlock Text="X=" />
                 <TextBlock Grid.Column="1" Text="{Binding Path=[XValues]}" />
 
                 <!-- y-coordinate -->
                <TextBlock Grid.Row="1" Text="Y=" />
                 <TextBlock Grid.Row="1" Grid.Column="1" Text="{Binding Path=Value}" />
 
          </Grid>
                        </Border>
                    </DataTemplate>
    </Window.Resources>

oops!! for datatemplate, you need to use DataTemplateSelector class. you need to override this class & implement selecttemplate method.
