Gets or sets a string that describes the primary method of manipulation for the Microsoft Silverlight plug-in instance and/or its content from the user's viewpoint, for accessibility purposes.

value = object.ActionDescription
object.ActionDescription = value

Type: string

A description of 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 ActionDescription property should be a verb or a short verb phrase that hints at possible interaction in the UI. For example, if the Silverlight content area plays a video trailer, and then hooks up a Canvas-level mouse click event that navigates to a new HTML page, you might report the ActionDescription as "After the video plays, click here for more."
