Property value

Type: System.String
A string that contains the URL to which users are redirected. For a wiki site, the string specifies a site-relative URL, for example, MyWikiFolder/MyWelcomePage.aspx, but for a wiki library, the string specifies a folder-relative URL, for example, MyWelcome.aspx.

The following example sets the site-relative URL of an item in a wiki library as the Welcome page that is used for the wiki site.

Dim siteCollection As New SPSite("http://MyServer/sites/MyWikiSite")
    Dim webSite As SPWeb = siteCollection.OpenWeb()
    Dim folder As SPFolder = webSite.RootFolder
    folder.WelcomePage = "My Wiki Library/MyWelcome.aspx"
End Try
