Property Value

string

A string that provides a description for the Silverlight plug-in instance and its content.

This property is read-write. The default is an empty string.

Remarks

The Description property provides a textual description about an object's visual appearance. The description is primarily used to provide greater context for low-vision or blind users, but is also used for context searching or other applications. The Description can help users understand the graphic or the overall visual appearance. If the entirety of the purpose for the Silverlight plug-in instance and its content can be summarized by its Title, do not specify the same string for Description.
