I am an iOS developer and implementing SharePoint integration in iPhone through one of my application. From the API information I got that there are 3 APIs related to Check In/Check Out/Undo Check Out functionality provided by SharePoint 2010.
But In the result information, I get only a boolean(true/false) for each operation. There are many conditions,
I try to check out a document which is already checked out by some other(since I am from my iPhone and is not synced with latest status of the site, how could I know the reason is "the file has already been checked out")
I try to check in a document which is not checked out by myself/as per my current status it is not checked out.(There may be 2 reasons for the "false" response, a)The file has been already checked out by some one else. b)The file has not been checked out by you). One way I could make an assumption is like, since I have not checked out the file I can not check in that. How can get the info if the condition is former one(a)?
These are the APIS given from SharePoint for the these functionalities,
URL : /_vti_bin/Lists.asmx
Check In : /_vti_bin/Lists.asmx?op=CheckInFile
Check Out : /_vti_bin/Lists.asmx?op=CheckOutFile SOAPAction: "http://schemas.microsoft.com/sharepoint/soap/CheckOutFile"
Undo Check Out : /_vti_bin/Lists.asmx?op=UndoCheckOut SOAPAction: "http://schemas.microsoft.com/sharepoint/soap/UndoCheckOut"
Please consider my question and give answers if possible.
