Write value to a Target Audience Field Programmatically

provera 10 mg effets secondaires Recently I came across an interesting question where user wanted to set the Target Audience Field value programmatically.

When setting this value through SharePoint UI you can either use your Audience which you have created using CA or you can use your SharePoint group.

So if you want to set Audience field value with the SharePoint Group using code it is very simple.​

In the following example I have enabled a list to have audience targetting. Doing this will add a field “Target Audience” to the list. Using the code I am updating the field value.

        private void setAudienceField()
{
SPWeb web = SPContext.Current.Web;;
SPList list = SiteWeb.Lists["YOUR LIST"];
web.AllowUnsafeUpdates = true;

SPGroup group = web.SiteGroups["YOUR SHAREPOINT GROUP NAME"];

SPListItem lstItem = list.Items.Add();

// set your list field values

............
// set Audience field
lstItem[lstItem.Fields["Target Audiences"].InternalName] = group.LoginName;

lstITem.Update();
web.AllowUnsafeUpdates = false;
}

If you want to update the audience field value with the audience name then the code is little different

        private void setAudienceField()
        {
                SPSite site = SPContext.Current.Site;
                SPWeb web = SPContext.Current.Web;
               SPList list = SiteWeb.Lists["YOUR LIST"];
               web.AllowUnsafeUpdates = true;

               Audience myAudience;

               SPServiceContext context = SPServiceContext.GetContext(site);

               AudienceManager audienceMgr = new AudienceManager(context);

               myAudience = audienceMgr.GetAudience("YOUR AUDIENCE NAME");

               SPListItem lstItem = list.Items.Add();

                 // set your list field values

                ............
                // set Audience field
               lstItem[lstItem.Fields["Target Audiences"].InternalName] = myAudience.AudienceID.ToString();
           
                itemToAdd.Update();
                web.AllowUnsafeUpdates = false;
        }

Anonymous Blog site on Office 365

Hello Everyone

So finally I have decided to move my blog to Office 365 and first thing I would like to do is to thank Martin Hatch. When I started playing with my blog site I realized that there is no way I can turn the anonymous permission on for this site. Luckily I found this article by Martin Hatch which shows how you can turn anonymous permission on for your blog.

So if you want to host your blog on Office 365 and you are running into issues with anonymous permission setting then I would highly recommend you to check this article out.

Over the next few days I will be moving all my old blog posts and then continue to blog about some interesting things I learned with SharePoint.

Happy SharePointing.
