public method Find(name: string): Transform;
public Transform Find(string name);

Parameters

name Name of child to be found.

Description

Finds a child by name and returns it.

If no child with name can be found, null is returned. If name contains a '/' character it will access the Transform in the hierarchy like a path name.

Note: Find does not perform a recursive descend down a Transform hierarchy.
