Property Value

Type: System.String
A String that represents the name; for example, "STS#0" or "MyCustomWebTemplate".


If the SPWebTemplate represents a site definition configuration, this property is a concatenation of the Name attribute of a Template element in a WebTemp*.xml file and the ID attribute of one of the child Configuration elements of the Template element. (See Understanding WebTemp*.xml Files for more information.) There is a "#" character in between the two parts; for example "MPS#1" or "MyCustomSiteDefinition#0".

If the SPWebTemplate represents a Web template, this property returns the Name attribute of the WebTemplate element in a elements.xml file contained in the .wsp file that stores the Web template.
