public abstract IEnumerable Children { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.Collections.IEnumerable
An object implementing the IEnumerable interface containing VirtualFile and VirtualDirectory objects.

The Children property contains both VirtualFile and VirtualDirectory objects that represent the files and directories contained in this virtual directory. To return only the VirtualFile objects, use the Files property. To return only the VirtualDirectory objects, use the Directories property.

Notes to Inheritors:

If your virtual-directory structure contains moderate to large numbers of virtual resources, you should take care to minimize the system resources consumed by enumerating the virtual directory.
