If an object has no children, then Nothing is returned.
Children is used primarily by Visual C++. Children property returns every object returnable from a code element. A class, for example, returns members, bases, implemented interfaces, attributes, comments, and so forth.
To iterate through the members of a namespace or type (class, struct, interface, and so forth), you must query interface (QI) or cast theto a and then use the property.
Children returns the collection of all related CodeElement objects that can be referenced via this code element.
The Children property may return Nothing depending on the object and the language. There is no requirement to support this in Visual Studio.
The values of code model elements such as classes, structs, functions, attributes, delegates, and so forth can be non-deterministic after making certain kinds of edits, meaning that their values cannot be relied upon to always remain the same. For more information, see the section Code Model Element Values Can Change in.
