The following code example iterates through all document templates of the current site and displays information about each template.

The example assumes the existence of an .aspx page that contains a label control, and that the document template for a library exists in the Forms folder of the document library.

This example requires using directives (Imports in Visual Basic) for the Microsoft.SharePoint and Microsoft.SharePoint.Utilities namespaces.

Dim site As SPWeb = SPControl.GetContextWeb(Context)
Dim docTemps As SPDocTemplateCollection = site.DocTemplates
Dim docTemp As SPDocTemplate

For Each docTemp In  docTemps

    Label1.Text += docTemp.DefaultTemplate & " :: " 
        & SPEncode.HtmlEncode(docTemp.Description) _
        & " :: " & SPEncode.HtmlEncode(docTemp.Name) & " :: " 
            & docTemp.Type & "<BR>"

Next docTemp
SPWeb oWebsite = SPContext.Current.Web;
SPDocTemplateCollection collDocTemplates = oWebsite.DocTemplates;
foreach (SPDocTemplate oDocTemplate in collDocTemplates)
   Label1.Text += oDocTemplate.DefaultTemplate + " -- " +
   SPEncode.HtmlEncode(oDocTemplate.Description) + " -- " + 
   SPEncode.HtmlEncode(oDocTemplate.Name) + " -- " +
   oDocTemplate.Type + "<BR>";
