    I see that the dropdown tree has a get_embeddedTree() function that returns a RadTreeView. I wanted to get all nodes in the tree and test if they had any children.

     So I can do embeddedTree.get_allNodes(); and iterate through that array. Here comes the part I am asking about. In chrome console, I see there is a _hasChildren() function for a node. I don't see this documented anywhere on the Telerik site. Why is this function undocumented? Is it safe to use?

    The functions that start with "_" are private and are basically not recommended to use in production. Instead we recommend using get_nodes().get_count() and check if it is greater than zero.
