I'm new to SharePoint CSOM and I'm trying to get a list of SP Lists/Libraries.

Here's my code:

public LinkedList<string> getLibraries() {
        Web site = spClientContext.Web;

        LinkedList<string> libraries = new LinkedList<string>();
        foreach (List list in site.Lists)

        return libraries;

When code is executed CSOM returns all libraries, even those that are hidden from the web interface.
Something like this:

CSOM returned libraries SharePoint 2010 libraries

How can I determine which List/Library to display in my list so that it matches SharePoint UI visible lists?


Just check list.Hidden property, then add in libraries

foreach(List list in site.Lists) {
    if (!list.Hidden) {

  • One more question, I have the similar issue with folders, I getting folders which are not visible in the Web UI. Folder's do not have the Hidden property, how do I filter those? – Brlja Feb 22 '16 at 14:46
