The following example defines the rendering of a Web Part in which the ListViewByQuery class is used to specify a query for cases where the Documents list contains "Sample" in the Subject column.

         Dim list As SPList = currentweb.Lists("Documents")
         view.List = list
         Dim query As New SPQuery(view.List.DefaultView)
         query.ViewFields = "<FieldRef Name='Title'/>"
         query.Query = "<Where><Contains><FieldRef Name='Subject'/><Value Type='Text'>Sample</Value></Contains></Where>"

using Microsoft.SharePoint.WebControls;

namespace MyNamespace
    public class myWebPart:  System.Web.UI.WebControls.WebParts.WebPart
        public override void RenderControl(HtmlTextWriter writer)
            ListViewByQuery view = new ListViewByQuery();
            SPWeb currentweb = SPContext.Current.Web;
            SPList list = currentweb.Lists["Documents"];
            view.List = list;
            SPQuery query = new SPQuery(view.List.DefaultView);
            query.ViewFields = "<FieldRef Name='Title'/>";
            query.Query = "<Where><Contains><FieldRef Name='Subject'/><Value Type='Text'>Sample</Value></Contains></Where>";
            view.Query = query;

If the preceding example throws a NullReferenceException, verify that you have correctly used the List and Query properties. If you do not define the ViewFields property for the query, the example may raise an exception related to a missing list reference. If you do not create the SPQuery object with a view object, as seen in the example, the control will be rendered as a blank page.

The following example defines a query against a root Web site that returns the Title and Body column values for all items in the Announcements list where a field contains a specified user alias.

Dim webSite As SPWeb = SPContext.Current.Site.RootWeb
myListQuery.List = webSite.Lists("Announcements")

Dim query As New SPQuery(myListQuery.List.Views(3))
query.ViewFields = "<FieldRef Name=""Title""/><FieldRef Name=""Body""/>"
query.Query = "<Where><Contains><FieldRef Name=""UserField""/><Value Type=""Text""></Value></Contains></Where>"

myListQuery.DisableFilter = True
myListQuery.DisableSort = True
myListQuery.Query = query
SPWeb webSite = SPContext.Current.Site.RootWeb;
myListQuery.List = webSite.Lists["Announcements"];

SPQuery query = new SPQuery(myListQuery.List.Views[3]);
query.ViewFields = "<FieldRef Name=\"Title\"/><FieldRef Name=\"Body\"/>";
query.Query = "<Where><Contains><FieldRef Name=\"UserField\"/><Value Type=\"Text\"></Value></Contains></Where>";

myListQuery.DisableFilter = true;
myListQuery.DisableSort = true;
myListQuery.Query = query;

The previous example can be applied to an ASPX page by including a page directive that registers the Microsoft.SharePoint.WebControls namespace and inserting a control like the following within the form:

<%@ Register Tagprefix="SharePoint" Namespace="Microsoft.SharePoint.WebControls" Assembly="Microsoft.SharePoint, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=71e9bce111e9429c" %>
<SharePoint:ListViewByQuery ID="myListQuery" runat="server"/>
