I've been trying to do something fairly simple (I thouight). Basically I want to loop through all the controls that are within a DocumentWindow. I thought the C# code would be something like:

// testDocumentWindow, DocumentWindow containing other controls

foreach (object obj in testDocumentWindow.Items)
//do something

There are no attributes for testDocumentWindow.Controls, testDocumentWindow.Children or testDocumentWindow.Items.

Could someone please help.

Hi Ryan,

The DocumentWindow is a ContentControl, so it will effectively only have 1 child element. You can use VisualTreeHelper and our VisualTreeHelperExtended to walk the visual tree to get any descendents/children.
