Just want to make sure that the following syntax will work. The look-up list is on the parent list.

SPList lookupList = web.ParentWeb.GetList("States");

The syntax looks fine, of course there are a lot of assumptions here:

  • you are not already at the top-level web
  • the list exists on the parent
  • the current user has permissions to the list on the parent web

If you are fine with all those assumptions, it looks right.

  • All of your assumptions are correct. Cool. I will implement it accordingly. Thanks – K K Jun 10 '11 at 5:53
