Panel.Children Property

Gets a UIElementCollection of child elements of this Panel.

Namespace:  System.Windows.Controls
Assembly:  PresentationFramework (in PresentationFramework.dll)
XMLNS for XAML: http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml/presentation, http://schemas.microsoft.com/netfx/2007/xaml/presentation

public UIElementCollection Children { get; }
<object>
  <UIElementCollection .../>
</object>

The Children collection of a Panel element can only consist of UIElement objects. Adding a UIElement child to a Panel implicitly adds it to the UIElementCollection for the Panel element.

Do not use this collection with derived Panel classes; use the InternalChildren collection instead.

This property returns null if the Panel is data bound.

The following code example demonstrates how to use the Children property to add a UIElement child to a Panel element.


StackPanel myStackPanel = new StackPanel();
Button myButton = new Button();
myButton.Content = "Press me";
myStackPanel.Children.Add(myButton);
