View Thread: WPF GetVisualChild Bug with VB.NET
  • footballism

    I am by no means a VB.NET programmer, so I sent this thread to our internal discussion group, and I get the answer from there:

    MSFT Employee wrote:

    Protected Shadows ReadOnly Property VisualChildrenCount() As Integer

        Get

          Return visuals.Count

        End Get

      End Property

     

     

    Should be

     

      Protected Overrides ReadOnly Property VisualChildrenCount() As Integer

        Get

          Return visuals.Count

        End Get

      End Property

     

    When called on a parent class the Shadows property implementation is not called.  Rather the base class property is called, which returns 1.

     

    I should be able to figure this out myself, because In C#, I know what "Shadows" actually means:(
