CAML vs LINQ to SharePoint 2010 - Performance


LINQ to SharePoint is really cool.  There’s lots of things you can do with it that you can’t do with CAML alone.  It’s much easier to read, to work with, to maintain, and because of the strongly typed objects, you find more of your bugs at compile time than at run time like you have to with CAML. 210 more words

SharePoint - Programatically Starting a Workflow

Here is a code snippet I recently developed for starting a sharepoint workflow from code behind.

public void StartWorkFlow(string strListName, int intCurrentItemID, string strWorkflowName)
        using (SPSite objSite = new SPSite(SPContext.Current.Site.Url))
            using (SPWeb objWeb = objSite.OpenWeb())
                objWeb.AllowUnsafeUpdates = true;
                //get list
                SPList list = objWeb.Lists;
                //get list item
                SPListItem lstItem = list.GetItemById(intCurrentItemID);
                //obtain an instance of SPWorkflowManager which will be used to start the workflow
                SPWorkflowManager manager = objSite.WorkflowManager;
                //get all workflows associated with the list
                SPWorkflowAssociationCollection associationCol = list.WorkflowAssociations;
                //iterate through all the workflow and lookup for the workflow to be started
                foreach (SPWorkflowAssociation association in associationCol)
                    if (association.Name == strWorkflowName)
                        //get workflow association data
                        string associationData = association.AssociationData;
                        //start the workflow
                        manager.StartWorkflow(lstItem, association, associationData);                                
                objWeb.AllowUnsafeUpdates = false;
