HI!

I'm new to WPF so I need some help.

I'm working on a usercontrol.

I have this code.

   xmlns:apng="clr-namespace:Apng;assembly=ApngImage"
    Title="Window1" Height="200" Width="200" Background="Red" >
    <Grid>
        <Border Margin="10,10,10,10">
            <apng:ApngImage Name="apngControl1" Stretch="Fill" Path="chompy2.png" Fps="25" />
        </Border>
    </Grid>

But the image that I have hard coding here "chompy2.png" I like to set from a propertie instead.

How do I  do that?

Together with the Binding (see answer from Novice Novice), you also need to set the "DataContext".

For example:

this.DataContext = theObject;

@joriszwaenep… - You're right.

I'd assumed that would have been done as the code snippet is not complete

theObject => this is the object with a property called "Image" that you want to use for your databinding

You should put that line of code somewhere in your code, where you have created or selected the object that you want to bind to.  It could be the "Loaded" event, or it could be a property setter in case of a usercontrol ...
