I wrote a web part which creates items/events in my calendar list. There is a column which holds a hyperlink field. The column name is 'Form Link'. I can write my hyperlink from my code to the list item, but I would like to know how I can write the description - so the link will show the description text instead of the actual link.

this line writes the link to the field

calendarListItem["Form Link"] = "/SitePages//New%20Booking.aspx?bid=" + formlink;

What can I add or change to also write the description to this field.
