Introduction


Today, in this article let's play around with one of the interesting and most useful concepts in SharePoint 2010.

Question: What is renaming document library item?

In simple terms "It enables renaming of any specific document in the document library".

Step 1: Open SharePoint 2010 Central Administration and navigate to a specific site.

 

Step 2: Open up Visual Studio 2012 and try to "SharePoint Visual Web Part" project, as in:

 Step 3: Select "Deploy as a farm solution" as in the following and click the "Finish" button:

Step 4: The complete code of visualwebpart1usercontrol.ascx looks like this:

<%@ Assembly Name="$SharePoint.Project.AssemblyFullName$" %>
<%@ Assembly Name="Microsoft.Web.CommandUI, Version=14.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=71e9bce111e9429c" %>
<%@ Register TagPrefix="SharePoint" Namespace="Microsoft.SharePoint.WebControls"
    Assembly="Microsoft.SharePoint, Version=14.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=71e9bce111e9429c" %>
<%@ Register TagPrefix="Utilities" Namespace="Microsoft.SharePoint.Utilities" Assembly="Microsoft.SharePoint, Version=14.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=71e9bce111e9429c"
>
<%@ Register TagPrefix="asp" Namespace="System.Web.UI" Assembly="System.Web.Extensions, Version=3.5.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=31bf3856ad364e35" %>
<%@ Import Namespace="Microsoft.SharePoint" %>
<%@ Register TagPrefix="WebPartPages" Namespace="Microsoft.SharePoint.WebPartPages"
    Assembly="Microsoft.SharePoint, Version=14.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=71e9bce111e9429c" %>
<%@  Control Language="C#" AutoEventWireup="true" CodeBehind="VisualWebPart1.ascx.cs"
    Inherits="RenameDocLibApp.VisualWebPart1.VisualWebPart1" %>
<center>
    <div>
        <table style="font-family: Verdana; text-align: center;">
            <tr>
                <td colspan="2">
                    <asp:label id="Label1" runat="server" text="Renaming Document Library File - SharePoint 2010 via Visual Studio 2012"
                        font-bold="true" forecolor="Maroon" font-size="Large"></asp:label>
                </td>
            </tr>
            <tr>
                <td>
                    <asp:label id="Label2" runat="server" text="Please Enter Document Library Name:"></asp:label>
                </td>
                <td>
                    <asp:textbox id="TextBox1" runat="server"></asp:textbox>
                </td>
            </tr>
            <tr>
                <td>
                    <asp:label id="Label3" runat="server" text="Please Enter Document Library File to Rename:"></asp:label>
                </td>
                <td>
                    <asp:textbox id="TextBox2" runat="server"></asp:textbox>
                </td>
            </tr>
            <tr>
                <td>
                    <asp:label id="Label5" runat="server" text="Please Enter Document Library File ID to Rename:"></asp:label>
                </td>
                <td>
                    <asp:textbox id="TextBox3" runat="server"></asp:textbox>
                </td>
            </tr>
            <tr>
                <td colspan="2">
                    <asp:button id="Button1" runat="server" text="Renaming File Name" forecolor="Orange"
                        font-bold="true" backcolor="Black" onclick="Button1_Click" width="162px" />
                </td>
            </tr>
            <tr>
                <td colspan="2">
                    <asp:label id="Label4" runat="server" font-bold="true"></asp:label>
                </td>
            </tr>
        </table>
    </div>
</center>


Step 5: The complete code of visualwebpart1usercontrol.ascx.cs looks like this:

using Microsoft.SharePoint;
using System;
using System.ComponentModel;
using System.Web.UI.WebControls.WebParts;namespace RenameDocLibApp.VisualWebPart1
{
    [ToolboxItemAttribute(false)]
    public partial class VisualWebPart1 : WebPart
    {

        // Uncomment the following SecurityPermission attribute only when doing Performance Profiling using
        // the Instrumentation method, and then remove the SecurityPermission attribute when the code is ready
        // for production. Because the SecurityPermission attribute bypasses the security check for callers of
        // your constructor, it's not recommended for production purposes.
        // [System.Security.Permissions.SecurityPermission(System.Security.Permissions.SecurityAction.Assert, UnmanagedCode = true)]
        public VisualWebPart1()
        {
        }
        protected override void OnInit(EventArgs e)

        {
            base.OnInit(e);InitializeControl();
        }
        protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {
            TextBox1.Focus();
        }
        protected void Button1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {
            if (string.IsNullOrEmpty(TextBox1.Text) || string.IsNullOrEmpty(TextBox2.Text) || string.IsNullOrEmpty(TextBox3.Text))
            {
                Label4.Text = "Please Enter Some Values";
                Label4.ForeColor = System.Drawing.Color.Red;
            }
            else
            {
                SPWeb web = SPContext.Current.Web;
                SPList list = web.Lists[TextBox1.Text];
                SPListItem item = list.GetItemById(int.Parse(TextBox3.Text));
                item.File.CheckOut();
                item["Name"] = TextBox2.Text;item.Update();
                item.File.CheckIn("File Name Change to " + TextBox2.Text, SPCheckinType.MinorCheckIn);
                TextBox1.Text = string.Empty;
                TextBox2.Text = string.Empty;
                TextBox3.Text = string.Empty;
            }
        }
    }
}

Step 6: Deploy the solution file and add the new webpart to a SharePoint site.

Step 7: The output of the application looks like this:

Step 8: The files in the document library before renaming of the application looks like this:

 

files-in-document-library-sharepoint2010.jpg

 

Step 9: Entering data output of the application looks like this:

 Step 10: The file in the document library after renamed output of the application looks like this:
