RenderContentSetChild Method (RenderContent, String)

Set another content as a child of this content. This content may or may not be attached to a document. If this content already has a child with the specified child slot name, that child will be deleted. If this content is not attached to a document, the child will be added without sending any events. If this content is attached to a document, the necessary events will be sent to update the UI. Note: Do not call this method to add children in your constructor. If you want to add default children, you should override Initialize() and add them there.
