I need code for adding a folder with Client Side Object Model using Custom Content Type (Folder) on SharePoint Library.

1 Answer 1


This script will add folder to any library:

   var list = ctx.Web.Lists.GetByTitle(listName);
            var folder = list.RootFolder;
            folder = folder.Folders.Add(folderName);

    It will add Folder, not custom content type of type folder.

    No, I understand he wants to add custom content type that inherits from Folder content type - but it may be the same as adding just a normal CT.
