Gets or sets a string that describes the appearance of a Silverlight plug-in.

value = object.Description
object.Description = value

Type: 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.

None. The managed API uses an entirely updated accessibility system. See Silverlight Accessibility Overview.

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