I am using PowerShell to add 100 items which need to be of a specific ContentType.
(requirement) Test my custom events receiver using powershell. The test is to create a list with a custom content type and then add 100 items of that content type.
(background) I am trying to rule out the reasons for a strange behaviour in list workflows. Support team claims it is caused by our custom AddItem event, which I doubt since the receiver works fine on other lists. My addItem custom event receiver uses the ContentTypeID to initiate a corresponding workflow from another configuration list.
(previous searches) This thread gives a different answer to my requirement, I don't want to change or update an-already-added item.
(question) How do I add an item with my content type ID, or create the object with certain CT-ID before adding it because I want to test the "AddItem" event receiver. I created te following pseudocode to clarify what I am looking for:
#Pseudo-code: get CSV "c:\file.csv" connect to SPList "MyList" for( file.Item Count ) Create Item object i; set object i.ContentID = 0x001ETC #this! MyList.AddItem(object i); End loop & close connection
