Attribute Data Type:
Attribute Default Value:
Attribute Inherited from Preferences?
Attribute First Added:
Number of children belonging to the current note (read-only).
This returns the count of direct children (i.e. one level down) and not all descendants. For a count (usually larger) of all notes below this see $DescendantCount.
The count excludes adornments, which are counted in $AdornmentCount.
Usually, rules and queries to test whether a note has children will test $ChildCount. But for export use if you want the expression to be
false if the note has children but none of the children are exported, then using ^if(^childLinks^)^ …is better.
