Use the GetDocDiscussions method of the SPWeb class to return all the document discussions for a specified folder in a site.


The following code example iterates through the Shared Documents folders of every site in the current site collection and, if the number of comments made in discussions of a document exceeds 10, copies the document into a subfolder within the document library. If the subfolder does not exist, the example creates it.

Dim siteCollection As SPSite = SPContext.Current.Site
Dim sites As SPWebCollection = siteCollection.AllWebs
Dim site As SPWeb

For Each site In  sites

    Dim discs As SPDocDiscussionCollection 
        = site.GetDocDiscussions("Shared Documents")
    Dim disc As SPDocDiscussion

    For Each disc In  discs

        If disc.CommentCount > 10 Then

            Dim files As SPFileCollection 
                = site.Folders("Shared Documents").Files
            Dim subFolders As SPFolderCollection 
                = site.Folders("Shared Documents").SubFolders

            Dim subFolder As SPFolder 
                = site.GetFolder("Shared Documents/Discussed")

            If Not subFolder.Exists Then

                subFolder = subFolders.Add
                    ("Shared Documents/Discussed")

            End If

            Dim urlString As String = disc.DocUrl.ToString()
            Dim index As Integer = urlString.LastIndexOf("/")
            Dim newUrl As String = urlString.Substring(index)

            files(urlString).CopyTo(subFolder.Url + newUrl)

        End If

    Next disc

Next site 
SPSite oSiteCollection = SPContext.Current.Site;
SPWebCollection collWebsites = oSiteCollection.AllWebs;

foreach (SPWeb oWebsite in collWebsites)
    SPDocDiscussionCollection collDocDiscussions = oWebsite.GetDocDiscussions("Shared Documents");

    foreach (SPDocDiscussion oDocDiscussion in collDocDiscussions)
        if (oDocDiscussion.CommentCount > 10)
            SPFileCollection collFiles = oWebsite.Folders["Shared Documents"].Files;
            SPFolderCollection collFolders = oWebsite.Folders["Shared Documents"].SubFolders;

            SPFolder oFolder = oWebsite.GetFolder("Shared Documents/Discussed");

            if (!oFolder.Exists)
                oFolder = collFolders.Add("Shared Documents/Discussed");

            string strUrl = oDocDiscussion.DocUrl.ToString();
            int intIndex = strUrl.LastIndexOf("/");
            string strNewUrl = strUrl.Substring(intIndex);

            collFiles[strUrl].CopyTo(oFolder.Url + strNewUrl);


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.
