Gets or sets the child element to draw the border around.
Public Property Child As UIElement
A single object element that the border encloses. This child must be an object that derives from UIElement.
Border can have only one child object. To apply a border around multiple objects, wrap the elements in a container (StackPanel, Grid, or Canvas, for example) and put the border around the container.
Child is the XAML content property for Border. A content item for a Border sets the Child property; a Border.Child property element is not required to enclose the content.
The following example shows how to wrap a border around multiple objects using a StackPanel as the container.
<Border BorderThickness="5" BorderBrush="Blue" >
<StackPanel Grid.Column="0" Grid.Row="0">
