I am struggling the open documents on check out mode by using given path. I created a client on C# I solved authentication problems to accessing to sharepoint. But I don't know how to open documents on edit mode.

    // System.Diagnostics.Process.Start(docUrl); // using this opens documents on read only mode

    namespace Sp_Ctx{
      class Program {
    static void Main(string[] args){
        //if (args.Length < 1) { Console.WriteLine("SP_Ctx <url>"); return; }

        string targetSite = "https://x/y/z/";

        using (ClientContext ctx = ClaimClientContext.GetAuthenticatedContext(targetSite))
            if (ctx != null)
                ctx.Load(ctx.Web); // Query for Web
                Microsoft.SharePoint.Client.Web web = ctx.Web;

                var folder = web.GetFolderByServerRelativeUrl(@"/a/b/c");

                ctx.ExecuteQuery(); // Execute
        Console.ReadLine(); }}}
  • This looks like a console app. What does opening a document in that context look like? – Derek Gusoff Jul 30 '17 at 2:50
  • Yes, it is a console app. If I use System.Diagnostics.Process.Start(docUrl); it opens the documents on read only mode. How can I open it for editing? – babacan Jul 31 '17 at 8:41

You might try adding an "open for edit" protocol handler to the url.

For example:
