Property value

A SPBackupRestoreInformation (always either an SPBackupInformation or an SPRestoreInformation) that holds information that is needed by an operation's SPBackupRestoreConsoleObject to backup or restore the component.

The following example shows how to use the Information property in an implementation of the AddBackupObjects method.

public void AddBackupObjects(SPBackupRestoreObject parent)
    if (parent == null)
        throw new ArgumentNullException("parent");

    SPBackupRestoreObject self = parent.AddChild(this);
    self.Information.SetParameter(SPBackupRestoreObject.SPTypeName, this.GetType());
    self.Information.SetParameter(SPBackupRestoreObject.SPDescription, "Description of custom content component");

....foreach (ChildContent child in ChildContentCollection)
        IBackupRestore childIBR = child as IBackupRestore;
