Gets all of the child resource ids for a given resource.


API Doc: modX::getChildIds()

array getChildIds ([integer $id = null], [integer $depth = 10], [array $options = array()])


Get all the children IDs for the Resource 23. Limit to 6 levels deep. Only in the web context.

$array_ids = $modx->getChildIds(23,6,array('context' => 'web'));

Note that when using this method in the manager (to collect input options for a TV for example), you need to define the context with the third options parameter as it defaults to the current context (in that scenario the manager).
