AutomationPeer.GetChildrenCore method

Applies to Windows and Windows Phone

Provides the peer's behavior when a Microsoft UI Automation client calls GetChildren or an equivalent UI Automation client API.

Syntax


Protected Overridable Function GetChildrenCore() As IList(Of AutomationPeer)

Parameters

This method has no parameters.

Return value

Type: IVector<AutomationPeer> [C++] | System.Collections.Generic.IList<AutomationPeer> [.NET]

The collection of AutomationPeer objects for child elements.

Remarks

The "Core" methods are the standard implementations that perform the default action of an associated UI Automation client-callable method. You can override any of the "Core" methods to return alternative values in a custom automation peer. In this case, GetChildrenCore is invoked any time that GetChildren is called.

The base implementation returns null. Peers that represent controls with item collections may override this result. Test the behavior of the peer you are using or overriding and override GetChildrenCore if you want to change that behavior.
