Add, Update and Delete item in SharePoint List

I remembered add, update and delete item in SharePoint list is one of the first thing that I’ve learned in SharePoint. I know its quite common task that you have to deal within SharePoint and hence I reiterate it in this article.

The code below will Add new item into SharePoint list, Update the description of item added and Delete the item at the end.

using (SPSite site = new SPSite("http://sitename"))
// Or SPContext.Current.Site.Url
   using (SPWeb Web = site.OpenWeb())
      Web.AllowUnsafeUpdates = true;

      // Open List
      SPList list = Web.Lists["MyList"];

      // Add new item in List
      SPListItem item = list.Items.Add();
      item["Title"] = “Test Title”;
      item["Description"] = “Test Description”;

      // Get Item ID
      int listItemId = item.ID;

      // Update the List item by ID
      SPListItem itemUpdated = list.GetItemById(listItemId);
      itemUpdated["Description"] = “Update Description”;

      // Delete item
      SPListItem itemDeleted = list.GetItemById(listItemId);

      Web.AllowUnsafeUpdates = false;
