Assembly:  System (in System.dll)

public PropertyDescriptorCollection GetChildProperties()

Return Value

Type: System.ComponentModel.PropertyDescriptorCollection

A collection of property descriptor.

This method passes null for both the instance parameter and the filter parameter.

The properties for the instance parameter can differ from the properties of a class, because the container can add or remove properties if the instance parameter is sited.

The filter parameter can mix Type and Attribute objects. Filtering is defined by the following rules:

  • A Type object is treated as a wildcard; it matches any property that has the Type in its set of attributes.

  • If a property does not have an Attribute of the same class, the property will not be included in the returned array.

  • If the attribute is an instance of Attribute, the property must be an exact match to be included in the returned array.

  • If you specify an Attribute and it is the default property, it will be included in the returned array, even if there is no instance of Attribute in the property.
