Examples

The following example is a console application that demonstrates how an SPFieldUrlValue object can be used to get and set field values. The application searches the Links list for an item that contains a particular Url. If the list does not have a link to that Url, the application adds one.

using System;
using Microsoft.SharePoint;

namespace ConsoleApp
{
    class Program
    {
        static void Main(string[] args)
        {
            using (SPSite site = new SPSite("http://localhost"))
            {
                using (SPWeb web = site.OpenWeb("test"))
                {
                    // Get the Links list or create it if it does not exist.
                    SPList list = web.Lists.TryGetList("Links");

                    if (list == null || list.BaseTemplate != SPListTemplateType.Links)
                    {
                        // Create the list.
                        Guid listId = web.Lists.Add("Links", "A list of interesting Web pages.", SPListTemplateType.Links);
                        list = web.Lists.GetList(listId, false);
                    }

                    // Create a link field value.

                    // Print the field value.
                    Console.WriteLine(msdnValue);
                    
                    // Check if the list already has this link.

                        if (typedValue.Url == msdnValue.Url)
