A localized string for the display name of the domain property.

ExceptionCondition
ArgumentNullException

propertyDescriptor is null.

When an owner is specified when a domain property descriptor is created, then the DisplayName property of the property descriptor calls the GetPropertyDescriptorDisplayName method of the owner, and provides itself as the propertyDescriptor parameter. In a derived class, this can provide a central place to set the display names for all the properties of the element.
