So I have the standard Content Editor Webpart (MSContentEditor.dwp). The title i can set via webPart.Title (MSDN).

I can't find any property where I would set the content editor's content.

I basically want to provision the webpart to a publishing page (done), set it's title so something (done) and set some default content for it (stuck on this one). Any help is appreciated.

ContentEditorWebPart wp = ....

XmlDocument xDoc = new XmlDocument();
var contentRoot = xDoc.CreateElement("ContentRoot");
contentRoot.InnerText = "Your text here";
wp.Content = contentRoot


  • That was easy :-)

Here you go :)

ContentEditorWebPart.Content Property

You might need to cast your WebPart to ContentEditorWebPart if you can't see this property.
