I'm new to SharePoint and I have a project to check with c# whether or not a document library exists from a given url, using folder level and document library name as parameters.

Could any one help me with that?

If your have a valid SPWeb in web, and document library title in libTitle variables, return (web.Lists.TryGetList(libTitle) != null) will return true only if that document library exists

  • thank you for your response,but i just have weburl and library name, where url will be like url/server/libname/folder/folder1. so i need to check the library exists or not.i tried using your code but its throwing error
