SharePoint Lists

Entire content of a SharePoint Portal is displayed in various sections of the site. These sections will mostly be Lists along with other elements like Web Parts etc. Lists can be considered as a SQL Table with rows and columns, a data place holder for rows known as Items. Each List has its own defined set of columns configured either using SharePoint UI or using Object Model. Once Lists are defined, data can be inserted, various properties can be set using either UI or Object Model. Lists can be correlated with SPList in SharePoint Object Model.

SharePoint consists of various types of lists as under

  • Document Libraries
