I was wondering if there is any way to get all descendant terms for a termSet, not only direct children, but the complete set as a termsCollection.

The TermSet.Terms Property will return only the direct children.

Without having to itterate and build a client side list, is there a built in quicker way?

Something like TermSet.GetTerms(bool includeDescendants) ?

Mmm - I just found this

TermSet.GetAllTerms Method

If you work for Microsoft and implemented this method - I love you!
