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

public string Description { get; set; }

Property value

Type: System.String
Text that describes this PublishingPage object.

ExceptionCondition
[System.ArgumentException]

A property value that is not valid.

[System.ArgumentNullException]

Indicates that the value being set is a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic), which is not valid.

[System.UnauthorizedAccessException]

The current user does not have sufficient permissions to perform this action.

The Description value can be an empty string.

To save changes, you must call the Update after setting this property.

The user must have edit permissions on the PublishingPage to set this value. The user must have view permissions on the PublishingPage to initially retrieve it and get any of its property values.

If this property value is used in HTML that is rendered in a browser, you should HTML-encode the property value to avoid the possibility of scripting attacks.

This example sets some properties on a PublishingPage object, saves the new values, and publishes the PublishingPage.

Before compiling and running this example, verify that this SPLIstItem is a list item in the pages document library of a PublishingWeb.

This example assumes that the document library that contains the SPListItem requires content approval.
