currently created Picture Library using csom

on host Web in my last question, now trying to add some Images to that Library, So for that created Image folder into SharePoint Hosted App. how to achive above task

  • Just a heads up: the API you're looking to use is (or was at one point) called JSOM. (JavaScript SharePoint Object Model) CSOM (Client SharePoint Object Model) is currently only implemented for .NET languages. Both are based on the SharePoint Client Query Protocol, but since each implementation comes with its own limitations, you might find more relevant information using the proper term.

You can upload images using File.SaveBinaryDirect Method in sharepoint.

Go through MSDN, Also work in SharePoint Online.


using (var clientContext = new ClientContext(url))
 using (var fs = new FileStream(fileName, FileMode.Open))
     var fi = new FileInfo(fileName);
     var list = clientContext.Web.Lists.GetByTitle(listTitle);
     var fileUrl = String.Format("{0}/{1}", list.RootFolder.ServerRelativeUrl, fi.Name);

     Microsoft.SharePoint.Client.File.SaveBinaryDirect(clientContext, fileUrl, fs, true);

Note: NetworkCredential is used in on-premises environment, SharePointOnlineCredentials in SharePoint Online

  • Unless it's changed since the last time I checked, SaveBinaryDirect uses SharePoint's WebDAV endpoint to upload files. To use it yourself, you'd need to direct a PUT HTTP request with the request body containing your uploaded image. Not sure that really helps in your case, but if you'd like me to post an answer with more info, let me know. Commented Sep 29, 2015 at 16:30
