Namespace:  System.Windows
Assembly:  PresentationFramework (in PresentationFramework.dll)

public static IEnumerable GetChildren(
	DependencyObject current
)
You cannot use methods in XAML.

Parameters

current
Type: System.Windows.DependencyObject

The element from which to get the logical tree. This is expected to be either a FrameworkElement or FrameworkContentElement.

Return Value

Type: System.Collections.IEnumerable
The enumerable collection of immediate child elements from the logical tree of the specified element.

Use this signature and helper method primarily when you are unsure whether current is a FrameworkElement or FrameworkContentElement and are also unsure whether that element supports its own content model collection. If you can determine the type of element you are querying, check the specific content property that you know exists on that type of element. For example, if you know that the element you are querying is an ItemsControl, check the Items property to get a strongly typed collection, which has collection interface support and is probably more useful than an enumerator.
