In this article we can explore the creation of Document Library through code. Here we are using existing Document Templates inside SharePoint to create a new document library.

Following are the activities involved in Document Library creation:


·
Find the List Template
· Find the Document Template
· Create Document Library

Inside Visual Studio


Create a new console application and name it as DocLibCreation. Make sure you change the target framework to .Net 3.5.

Add the following code into the Program.cs file:

using (SPSite site = new SPSite("http://appes-pc/my/personal/dotnet"))
{
    using (SPWeb web = site.OpenWeb())
    {
        SPListTemplate listTemplate = web.ListTemplates["Document Library"];
        SPDocTemplate docTemplate = (from SPDocTemplate dt in web.DocTemplates
                                        where dt.Type == 122
                                        select dt).FirstOrDefault();

        Guid guid = web.Lists.Add("My Docs", "My Documents", listTemplate, docTemplate);

        SPDocumentLibrary library = web.Lists[guid] as SPDocumentLibrary;
        library.OnQuickLaunch = true;
        library.Update();
    }
}


Now run the application and you can see the new Document Library created inside SharePoint.




Document Templates

Following are the SharePoint 2010 document templates available:

Template ID Description
100 No Template
101 Word 2003 document
103 Excel 2003 document
104 PowerPoint 2003 document
121 Word document
122 Excel document
123 PowerPoint document
111 OneNote Notebook
102 SharePoint Designer HTML document
105 ASPX Web Page
106 ASPX Web Part Page
1000 InfoPath document

Uploading Document

Now we can try uploading a document to the above library programmatically. Use the following code to upload an excel file. Make sure the application bin folder contains a file named sample.xlsx.
using (SPSite site = new SPSite("http://appes-pc/my/personal/dotnet"))
{
    using (SPWeb web = site.OpenWeb())
    {
        SPDocumentLibrary library = web.Lists["My Docs"] as SPDocumentLibrary;

        SPFile file = library.RootFolder.Files.Add("sample.xlsx", File.ReadAllBytes("sample.xlsx"));
    }
}


You can see that the file is uploaded into SharePoint:



Downloading Document

Now we can try downloading a document from the above library programmatically. Use the following code:
using (SPSite site = new SPSite("http://appes-pc/my/personal/dotnet"))
{
    using (SPWeb web = site.OpenWeb())
    {
        SPDocumentLibrary library = web.Lists["My Docs"] as SPDocumentLibrary;
        SPFile file = web.GetFile(library.RootFolder.Url + "/sample.xlsx");

        Stream stream = file.OpenBinaryStream();
        FileStream fileStream = new FileStream("out.xlsx", FileMode.OpenOrCreate, FileAccess.Write);

        int buffer = 4096;
        int read = buffer;
        byte[] bytes = new byte[buffer];

        while (read == buffer)
        {
            read = stream.Read(bytes, 0, buffer);
            fileStream.Write(bytes, 0, read);
                        
            if (read < buffer) break;
        }

        stream.Dispose();
        fileStream.Dispose();
    }
}


After running the program, you can see that the file is created in the bin folder.



This concludes the following activities:


1.
Create Document Library
2. Upload a Document
3. Download a Document
