Is there any alternative to SPBuiltInFieldId in csom /SharePoint online?

Should you only reference field only by InternalName in csom/SharePoint online?

  • I'm not clear about question...Are you want to get field by internal name? Jul 25, 2017 at 6:21
  • I was looking for the SPBuiltInFieldId in SPO/CSOM, but I noticed I couldnt find it. If it has been removed, Im thinking that maybe its not recommended anymore to user field ids. So: (1) is it still there for csom (2) if not, is the reason bec you shouldnt use guids anymore

  • Not sure, But it seems that "SPBuiltInFieldId" OR Same alternative class is not available in CSOM. Jul 25, 2017 at 9:47
  • Agreed, just wondering if there are some other way. I could of course whip up a BuildInffieldId-class of my own, but maybe its not recommended. Seems like MS has dropped the notion of documenting sp online, so Im keeping this question open here
