Property Value

Type: System.Configuration.Install::Installer^

An Installer containing the collection that this instance belongs to, or null if this instance does not belong to a collection.

If this instance of Installer is part of an installer collection, the Parent property is set to the Installer instance that contains the collection. For an example of the use of the Installers collection, see the AssemblyInstaller class.

The Installers property contains a collection of installers. The Install, Commit, Rollback, and Uninstall methods of the Installer class go through the collection of installers and invokes the corresponding method of each installer.

The following example demonstrates the Parent property. The Parent property gets the Installer containing the collection that this Installer belongs to.

AssemblyInstaller^ myAssemblyInstaller1 = gcnew AssemblyInstaller;
InstallerCollection^ myInstallerCollection1 = myAssemblyInstaller1->Installers;
// 'myAssemblyInstaller' is an installer of type 'AssemblyInstaller'.
myInstallerCollection1->Add( myAssemblyInstaller );

Installer^ myInstaller1 = myAssemblyInstaller->Parent;
Console::WriteLine( "Parent of myAssembly : {0}", myInstaller1 );
