Assembly:  Microsoft.SharePoint (in Microsoft.SharePoint.dll)

public string FilterCategories { get; }

Property value

Type: System.String
a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic), if the SPWebTemplate represents a site definition configuration instead of a Web template.
"Meetings", if the SPWebTemplate represents a Web template and the source site from which it was created uses any of the configurations in the MPS site definition.
"Collaboration", if the SPWebTemplate represents a Web template and the source site from which it was created uses a configuration from any other site definition, such as STS or BLOG.

This property is never read by any code that ships with SharePoint Foundation.

Enhanced portal or content management solutions built on SharePoint Foundation, such as Microsoft SharePoint Server, may use this property for a purpose other than what is described here and it may have a different pattern of values in those solutions from what is described here.

In general this property can be used to categorize site definition configurations in ways that do not map precisely onto the categorizations that appear in the UI when users are creating a new Web site. (Contrast this property with DisplayCategory.) Since the property is not settable, you must set the value of the FilterCategories attribute of the Configuration element in the WebTemp*.xml file that defines the site definition. (See WebTemp.xml for more information.)
