Create list using SharePoint 2013 client object model

In this post we will discuss about how we can create SharePoint list using SharePoint 2013 client object model. In my previous we have discussed how we can delete a SharePoint list using client object model.

First give reference of two DLLs which are needed to work with SharePoint client object model namely: Microsoft.SharePoint.Client.Runtime.dll and Microsoft.SharePoint.Client.dll from the location C:\ProgramFiles\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\web server extensions\15\ISAPI

Below is the full code and in this example we will create a custom Task list.

string siteURL = "http://Your Site URL/";

ClientContext context = new ClientContext(siteURL);

Web web = context.Web;

ListCreationInformation listCreationInfo = new ListCreationInformation();

listCreationInfo.Title = "My Task List";

listCreationInfo.Description = "This is a custom task list !";

listCreationInfo.TemplateType = (int)ListTemplateType.Tasks;

List list = web.Lists.Add(listCreationInfo);
