Assembly:  Microsoft.SharePoint (in Microsoft.SharePoint.dll)


Public Property PortalUrl As String

instance.PortalUrl = value
public string PortalUrl { get; set; }

Property value

Type: System.String
A string that contains a URL ending with a forward slash ("/"), as in "http://Portal_Name/".


The PortalUrl property must be set together with the PortalName property in order to establish a connection to a portal site. The PortalUrl property must be specified first and the PortalName property second.


The following code example uses the PortalUrl property to establish a connection to a portal site from the specified site collection.

Using oSiteCollection As New SPSite("http://Server_Name/sites/Site_Name")
    oSiteCollection.PortalUrl = "http://Portal_Site/"
    oSiteCollection.PortalName = "Portal_Name"
End Using
using (SPSite oSiteCollection = new SPSite("http://Server_Name/sites/Site_Name"))
    oSiteCollection.PortalUrl = "http://Portal_Site/";
    oSiteCollection.PortalName = "Portal_Name";
