How to create and add view dynamically though code in a list?

Hi All,

May times we need to create view dynamically and then add that created view to the List.

Here is a simple way to accomplish this task.

First make a StringCollection object.

System.Collections.Specialized.StringCollection viewFields = new System.Collections.Specialized.StringCollection();

then add Fields from list in the StringCollection object.

For example you want to create a new view with this 4 fields from list then,


String strQuery = "{Your CAML Query}";

This Query is for fetching all records where Title column is not blank. you can customize this query accordig to your requirement.

objTaskList.Views.Add("ViewName", viewFields, strQuery, 10000, false, true);

//to make just crteated view as default view

objTaskList.Views["ViewName"].DefaultView = true;

That's it. your job is done.
