SPFolder.WelcomePage property

Gets or sets the URL to which users are redirected when they browse to the folder.

Namespace:  Microsoft.SharePoint
Assembly:  Microsoft.SharePoint (in Microsoft.SharePoint.dll)
[ClientCallableConstraintAttribute(Type = ClientCallableConstraintType.NotNull)]
public string WelcomePage { get; set; }

Property value

Type: System.String
A string that contains the URL to which users are redirected. For a wiki site, the string specifies a site-relative URL, for example, MyWikiFolder/MyWelcomePage.aspx, but for a wiki library, the string specifies a folder-relative URL, for example, MyWelcome.aspx.

The following example sets the site-relative URL of an item in a wiki library as the Welcome page that is used for the wiki site.

using (SPSite oSiteCollection = new SPSite("http://MyServer/sites/MyWikiSite"))
    SPWeb oWebsite = oSiteCollection.OpenWeb();
    SPFolder oFolder = oWebsite.RootFolder; 
    oFolder.WelcomePage = "My Wiki Library/MyWelcome.aspx";
