public:
static int GetChildrenCount(
	DependencyObject^ reference
)

Parameters

reference
Type: System.Windows::DependencyObject

The parent visual that is referenced as a DependencyObject.

Return Value

Type: System::Int32
The number of child visuals that the parent visual contains.

Use the GetChild method to retrieve a specified child of a parent visual.

The value of reference can represent either a Visual or Visual3D object, which is why the common base type DependencyObject is used here as a parameter type.

The following example shows how to enumerate all the descendants of a visual object. This is a technique you might use if you are interested in serializing all the rendering information of a visual object hierarchy or are performing analysis or alternative rendering.
