I know the name of the layout page. Do I still have to go through this process to get the layout page?

foreach (PageLayout pl in pageLayouts)
if (pl.Name.Equals("MyLayout.aspx", StringComparison.InvariantCultureIgnoreCase))
    currPageLayout = pl;

Since a PageLayout is just an SPFile in an SPList (Master Page Gallery), you can get a reference to the SPFile and use the PageLayout constructor to get your PageLayout by passing in SPFile.Item

Something like this

new PageLayout(site.RootWeb.Files["webrelativeurltoyourpagelayout.aspx"].Item);
  • that did not work. hmm. any other suggesion(s)? May 18, 2011 at 17:16
  • Did you manage to get a valid reference to the SPFile? What value did you use for webrelativeurltoyourpagelayout.aspx? May 24, 2011 at 13:14
  • this worked for me: new PageLayout(site.RootWeb.GetFile("_catalogs/masterpage/newLayout.aspx").Item);
