An SPUser object that represents the secondary contact.


The user that is specified by the SecondaryContact property should not be identical to the user that is specified by the Owner property.


The following code example sets a user as the secondary contact for a site collection.

Using oSiteCollection As New SPSite("http://" + System.Environment.MachineName)
    Using oWebsiteRoot As SPWeb = oSiteCollection.Current.Site.AllWebs(System.Environment.MachineName)
        oWebsite.SecondaryContact = oWebsiteRoot.RootWeb.Users("User_Name")
    End Using
End Using
using (SPSite oSiteCollection = new SPSite("http://" + System.Environment.MachineName))
    using (SPWeb oWebsiteRoot = oSiteCollection.Current.Site.AllWebs("http://" + System.Environment.MachineName))
        oWebsite.SecondaryContact = oWebsiteRoot.RootWeb.Users["User_Name"];


Certain objects implement the IDisposable interface, and you must avoid retaining these objects in memory after they are no longer needed. For information about good coding practices, see Disposing Objects.
