Remarks

UIElementCollection provides the collection support for Children.

The XAML syntax shown is the XAML implicit collection syntax for populating items in the UIElementCollection held by the Panel.Children property. Panel.Children is not literally shown in the syntax because Panel.Children is the content property for any element of a practical "Panel" class that derives from Panel. Therefore panelObject.Children can be omitted as a property element.
