Get a views subviews?

Is it possible to get the subviews for a given view within Titanium?

I believe the iPhone SDK supports it by [self.view subviews].

    you can get subviews by using "children", this will return an array consisting of child-objects

  • Can't for the life of me understand why this is not in the Titanium mobile API documentation. How the heck are people supposed to know this!?

    • No way. :)

      They (Appcelerator) are aware that their documentation is poor and that it misses a lot of things. They are working to improve documentation, so be patient and ask here in Q/A, many people have encountered similar issues, so they can be very helpful.
