ItemAutomationPeer.GetChildrenCore Method

Returns automation peers for the collection of child elements of the owner. The owner class is associated with the ItemAutomationPeer. This method is called by GetChildren.

Namespace:  System.Windows.Automation.Peers
Assembly:  System.Windows (in System.Windows.dll)

Syntax

'Declaration
Protected Overrides Function GetChildrenCore As List(Of AutomationPeer)
protected override List<AutomationPeer> GetChildrenCore()

Return Value

Type: System.Collections.Generic.List<AutomationPeer>
A list of AutomationPeer elements.

Remarks

This method is relevant for cases where an item in a collection is itself another collection.

If the item is a UIElement with its own peer as reported by Owner, then information from that peer is forwarded. Next, the container peer (which could be ItemsControlAutomationPeer, ListBoxAutomationPeer, or another class) is used as a possible source. Finally, if there is no container peer, then this method returns nulla null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic).
