How to set a webpart title and description programmatically

Categories Tags
Suppose the headline says it all, here is the code to set the name and description of a webpart programmatically in vb.net. Just a little snippet
Public Class MyWebPart
    Inherits Microsoft.SharePoint.WebPartPages.WebPart

    ' Method to set WebPart title and description
    ' By Bendsoft 2010
    Public Sub WebPartTitleDesc(ByVal title As String, ByVal desc As String)
        Me.Title = title
        Me.Description = desc
        Try
            Me.SaveProperties = True
        Catch ex As Exception
            Me.Controls.Add(New System.Web.UI.LiteralControl(ex.Message))
        End Try
    End Sub

    Protected Overrides Sub CreateChildControls()

        ' Set the Name of the web part
        Me.WebPartTitleDesc("MyWebPart List Name", "MyWebPart Description")

    End Sub
End Class
No magic really, just make sure to call the method WebPartTitleDesc from the CreateChildControls
