    Time to wrap up this series and we’re going to mostly talk about managing web parts using the client object model.

  • Blog Post: Using the SharePoint 2010 Client Object Model - Part 1

    SharePoint 2010 introduces a new client side object model (hereafter referred to as the “client OM”) for retrieving data. It supports a subset of functionality contained in the server side object model, but generally speaking gives you ready access to the data in your SharePoint site using standard object...
  • Blog Post: Using the SharePoint 2010 Client Object Model - Part 2

    In part 1 of this post, I described some general features of the new client object model (“client OM”) that is included with SharePoint 2010.

    Just the subject line of this post is a mouthful, if it’s any indication of what we’re going to be covering today. This post is going to address an issue that has long bothered myself and others. I just recently started asking around about it and then coincidentally got an email from someone...

  • Blog Post: Using the SharePoint 2010 Client Object Model - Part 3

    In the first two parts of this posting I described the pattern you can use to retrieve data with the client object model (“client OM”). I showed how to use the same pattern to retrieve both a set of lists, as well as data contained within a single list. In this post we’ll talk about ways that we can...
  • Blog Post: Using the SharePoint 2010 Client Object Model - Part 5

    The previous posts in this series have been pretty list-centric. In this posting we’re going to delve down a different path in exploring the client object model and talk about security. The client OM actually provides great support for working with the security model in SharePoint. You can do everything...

    I had the occasion to need to figure out accessing the Managed Metadata Store using the new client object model libraries for SharePoint 2013. In snooping around, I found virtually no documentation on this topic whatsoever, other than generic boilerplate class definitions that have been clearly emitted...
