Gets a string that describes the visual appearance of the specified object. Not all objects have a description.
Assembly: System.Windows.Forms (in System.Windows.Forms.dll)
This property describes the object's visual appearance to the user.Notes to Inheritors:
The default implementation returns the accessible object's description if the object wraps a system control; otherwise, it returns null. The description is typically used to provide greater context for low-vision or blind users. It can also be used for context searching or other applications. Servers need to support the property if the description is not obvious, or if it is redundant based on the object's Name, Role, State, and Value properties. For example, a button with "OK" does not need additional information, but a button that shows a picture of a cactus would. The Name, Role, and perhaps Help properties for the cactus button describe its purpose, but the property conveys information that is less tangible, like "A button that shows a picture of a cactus".
