Remarks
Suppose the target property is named Foo. If a method named ValidateFoo exists in the class, it will be used to validate the values assigned to this property. If a method named OnFooChanged exists in the class, it will be invoked whenever the property set. If a property named FooProperty exists in the class, it will be assigned to the corresponding DependencyProperty instance. Naming conventions can be overridden by the ValidateValueMethod, PropertyChangedMethod and RegistrationProperty aspect properties.
