How to check page is homepage/default page programmatically in C# sharepoint 2010




To know if a web page is the default page of a SharePoint web site (or any folder) in c# you can use the SPFolder.WelcomePage property. This property return a URL for the default page so you can compare it with the URL of the page you want to test.

Example to test if a page is default for a SharePoint site:

// After you get the SPWeb object...
string defaultPageUrl = web.RootFolder.WelcomePage;
if(defaultPageUrl == <Test Page Url>)
  <Test Page Url> is the default page.
  • I was researching myself the answer, so I would like to complete yours: string defaultPageUrl = Microsoft.SharePoint.Utilities.SPUtility.ConcatUrls(web.ServerRelativeUrl,web.RootFolder.WelcomePage); and <Test Page Url> should be this.Page.Request.Url.AbsolutePath. Then the comparison will work indeed. :)
