Walker::display_element( object $element, array $children_elements, int $max_depth, int $depth, array $args, string $output )

Traverses elements to create list from elements.


Description

Display one element if the element doesn’t have any children otherwise, display the element and its children. Will only traverse up to the max depth and no ignore elements under that depth. It is possible to set the max depth to include all depths, see walk() method.

This method should not be called directly, use the walk() method instead.
