In ASP.NET Dynamic Data applications, the MetaChildrenColumn class represents a database field that indicates a one-to-many relationship or a parent-child relationship.

The MetaChildrenColumn class represents the field in the parent table of the one-to-many relationship. However, you can access the child table object by using the ChildTable property. You can also retrieve the foreign-key field in the child table by using the ColumnInOtherTable property.


Any public static (Shared in Visual Basic) members of this type are thread safe. Any instance members are not guaranteed to be thread safe.
