Description

Gets or sets the text string used for the description property of the zone.

Syntax

string Description {get; set;}

Property value

The description property for the zone.

Discussion

The zone description can consist of any text string up to the number maximum of characters available in the data attribute where zone properties are stored. The maximum number of characters available for the attribute is approximately 850, but the maximum available for the description depends on the other data being stored. For example, the more available shells you have defined for a zone, the shorter the zone description must be.

Example

The following code sample illustrates setting this property in a script:

...
'Specify the zone you want to work with
set zone = cims.GetZone("fireball.net/Field/Zones/macs")
'Set the long description for the zone
zone.Description = "Mac OS X computers and users in Fireball field offices"
zone.Commit()
