Web class

Represents a Microsoft SharePoint Foundation Web site.

Inheritance hierarchy


Namespace:  Microsoft.SharePoint.Client
Assembly:  Microsoft.SharePoint.Client (in Microsoft.SharePoint.Client.dll)


Public Class Web _
    Inherits SecurableObject
Dim instance As Web
public class Web : SecurableObject


Many methods and properties in the Microsoft.SharePoint.Client namespace can return a single website. You can use the Webs property of the Web class to return all the immediate child websites beneath a website, excluding children of those child websites. You can also use the AllWebs property of the Site class to return all websites within the site collection; or use the GetSubwebsForCurrentUser() method of Web to return all websites for the current user.

Use an indexer to return a single website from the collection. For example, if the collection is assigned to a variable named collWebSites, use collWebSites[index] in C#, or collWebSites(index) in Visual Basic, where index is the index number of the site in the collection, the display name of the website, or the GUID for the site.


This code example displays information about a subweb.

using System;
using Microsoft.SharePoint.Client;

namespace Microsoft.SDK.SharePointFoundation.Samples
    class WebExample
        static void Main()
            string siteUrl = "http://MyServer/sites/MySiteCollection";

            ClientContext clientContext = new ClientContext(siteUrl);
            Web site = clientContext.Web;


            Console.WriteLine("Site information: \n\n");
            Console.WriteLine("Title: {0}", site.Title);
            Console.WriteLine("ID: {0}", site.Id);
            Console.WriteLine("Language: {0}", site.Language);
            Console.WriteLine("UI Version: {0}", site.UIVersion);
            Console.WriteLine("Description: {0}", site.Description);
            Console.WriteLine("Created: {0}", site.Created);
