I got the following event code wich is called when clicking a button:

void addSubject_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
 SPWeb thisWeb = SPContext.Current.Web;
 thisWeb.AllowUnsafeUpdates = true;

 SPList productList = thisWeb.List["Documents"];
 SPview view = productList.Views["All Items"];



On my sitepage, where I inserted the "Documents" web part, nothing happens. However if I click on the "Documents" link to the left to only see the "Documents" list, I can see the view has changed. Also if I choose "Edit web part" and change "Selected View" I can see the changes...So how do I see the changes directly when clicking the button??

Redirect to the same page again, its not refreshing the View on the page!


  • Alright..Sorry for being stupid but how exactly do I do that with code?

The View changes will not be displayed in the Documents WebPart. This is a standard SharePoint behavior. The given link has more information: How exactly do SharePoint 2010 List Views behave?
