This is yet another very simple example of a question I’ve been getting over and over the past couple of months through comments and emails – instead of answering it each time in the mail, I’m simply shooting it out here.
Deleting a Field from a View programmatically
Alright, here’s a good starting point for you to check out if you simply want to remove a field from the view. Simple as that.
SPList list = SPContext.Current.Web.Lists["MyAwesomeList"];
SPView view = list.Views["MyView"];
bool allowUnsafe = SPContext.Current.Web.AllowUnsafeUpdates;
SPContext.Current.Web.AllowUnsafeUpdates = true;
SPContext.Current.Web.AllowUnsafeUpdates = allowUnsafe;
The aforementioned code is all there’s to it in order for you to get started.
Simple, quick, effective!
