Parameters

HANDLE Current

Object to search children of
The default value for this parameter is: this

STRING ChildName

Name of the child to search for


Return value

HANDLE

A handle to the child of Current whose name matches ChildName


Detailed description

This call will search the components owned and in scope for the non-case sensitive ChildName.

This call is unnecessary if 'this' is passed as Current and ChildName is a literal string. In this case it is more efficient to use the constant variable which will point to the child component.


Examples

Calling in a calculation

  • Declare a variable 'result' of type HANDLE
  • Add to a calculation icon:
    result = ::Component.FindChild(current, "childname")
