A value of January 01, 1900, indicates that an instance of the ScheduledItem class has a start date that is set to a past date and should be published immediately after it is approved. If the start date is set to January 01, 1900, the property is displayed as "Immediately" in the corresponding user interfaces.
To save changes after you set this property, call the ScheduledItem.LIstItem.Update method.
The date and time that are returned by this property can be converted from UTC to local time in server-side code using the SPRegionalSettings.TimeZone.UTCToLocalTime(DateTime) method.
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 the PublishingPage and get any of its property values.
This sample sets a start and end date for a ScheduledItem object and schedules the item so that it is published when the start date is reached and it is unpublished when the end date is reached.
Before compiling and running this sample, verify that the SPListItem is a list item in a document library that supports scheduling.
