Tinderbox Icon

descendant (descendent) (DEPRECATED)

This pages describes features, codes or syntax whose use is now DEPRECATED, i.e. not advised either for new or continued pre-existing use.

Deprecated aspects of Tinderbox may be supported on a legacy basis but the latter support can't be presumed to be indefinite. Therefore you should update your active TBX documents to latest practice as soon as practical.

Do not use; this old syntax is now deprecated in favour of 'descendants'. For post v4 group-based action operators it seems the misspelling of 'descendent' is supported - this is also deprecated usage.

Designators don't allow offset references as with attributes. Thus $Name("Some note") works but children("Some note") doesn't. If an offset designator is needed use find() instead.
