A quick look on Sharepoint object model programs – Part 3

I have got the chance to post useful Sharepoint object model programs (part 3) with bare minimum lines of code and really handy even.
Please follow the link for a quick look on Sharepoint object model programs Part 1 and Part 2

Creating a Folder in a Document Library:

static void Main(string[] args)
        {
            try
            {
                SPSite mySite = new SPSite("http://servername:port");
                SPWeb myWeb = mySite.OpenWeb();
                SPList MyLibrary = myWeb.Lists["Your Document Library Name....."];
                SPFolder myFolder = MyLibrary.RootFolder;
                SPFolder myChildFolder = myFolder.SubFolders.Add("Your Folder Name.....");
                myFolder.Update();
            }
            catch(Exception ex)
            {
                Console.WriteLine(ex);
            }
            Console.WriteLine("Press any key to continue.....");
            Console.ReadLine();
        }

Add fields to list:

static void Main(string[] args)
        {
            try
            {
                SPSite mySite = new SPSite("http://servername:port");
                SPWeb myWeb = mySite.OpenWeb();
                SPList myList = myWeb.Lists["Your List Name....."];
                Guid listId = myList.ID;
                myList.Fields.Add("Employee ID", SPFieldType.Number, true);
                myList.Fields.Add("Employee Name", SPFieldType.Text, false);
                myList.Fields.Add("Designation", SPFieldType.Text, false);
                myList.Update();
            }
            catch(Exception ex)
            {
                Console.WriteLine(ex);
            }
            Console.WriteLine("Press any key to continue.....");
            Console.ReadLine();
        }

Creating a new view in a list:

static void Main(string[] args)
        {
            try
            {
                SPSite mySite = new SPSite("http://servername:port");
                SPWeb myWeb = mySite.OpenWeb();
                SPList mylist = myWeb.Lists["Your List Name....."];
                StringCollection myFields = new StringCollection();
                myFields.Add("Employee Name");
                myFields.Add("Designation");
                SPView myView= mylist.Views.Add("Your View Name.....", myFields, null, 100, false, false, SPViewCollection.SPViewType.Html, false);
            }
            catch(Exception ex)
            {
                Console.WriteLine(ex);
            }
            Console.WriteLine("Press any key to continue.....");
            Console.ReadLine();
        }

Creating a new Content Type:

static void Main(string[] args)
        {
            try
            {
                SPSite mySite = new SPSite("http://servername:port");
                SPWeb myWeb = mySite.OpenWeb();
                SPContentTypeCollection myContentTypeCollection = myWeb.ContentTypes;
                SPContentType myContentType= new SPContentType(myContentTypeCollection[SPBuiltInContentTypeId.Item], myContentTypeCollection, "Content Type Name.....");
                myContentTypeCollection.Add(myContentType);
            }
            catch(Exception ex)
            {
                Console.WriteLine(ex);
            }
            Console.WriteLine("Press any key to continue.....");
            Console.ReadLine();
        }

Adding the existing Site Columns to existing Content Type:

static void Main(string[] args)
        {
            try
            {
                SPSite mySite = new SPSite("http://servername:port");
                SPWeb myWeb = mySite.OpenWeb();
                SPFieldCollection myFieldCollection = myWeb.Fields;
                SPContentType myContentType=myWeb.ContentTypes["Content Type Name"];
                myContentType.FieldLinks.Add(new SPFieldLink(myFieldCollection["Employee Name"]));
                myContentType.FieldLinks.Add(new SPFieldLink(myFieldCollection["Designation"]));
                myContentType.Update();
            }
            catch(Exception ex)
            {
                Console.WriteLine(ex);
            }
            Console.WriteLine("Press any key to continue.....");
            Console.ReadLine();
        }

Save site as template:

static void Main(string[] args)
        {
            try
            {
                SPSite mySite = new SPSite("http://servername:port");
                SPWeb myWeb = mySite.OpenWeb();
                myWeb.SaveAsTemplate("FiveNumber.stp", "FiveNumber", "Its All About SharePoint", true);
            }
            catch(Exception ex)
            {
                Console.WriteLine(ex);
            }
            Console.WriteLine("Press any key to continue.....");
            Console.ReadLine();
        }

Delete Recycle Bin Items:

static void Main(string[] args)
{
SPSite mySite = new SPSite(“http://servername:port”);
SPWeb myWeb = mySite.OpenWeb();
SPRecycleBinItemCollection myRecycleBinCollection = mySite.RecycleBin;
for (int i = 0; i < myRecycleBinCollection.Count; i++) { myRecycleBinCollection[i].Delete(); i--; } Console.WriteLine("Press any key to continue....."); Console.ReadLine(); } [/sourcecode]
