Programmaticaly checkin all documents in a document library

Today i wrote some small peace of code but it saved me a lot of (click) work. I uploaded 200 documents to a document library but all documents were checked out. I could do this boring job manualy but as a Sharepoint developer i wrote a quick console application to do the job.

This is the code (you can copy past it to you console application):

using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Text;
using Microsoft.SharePoint;

namespace CheckinDocuments
{
class Program
{
static void Main(string[] args)
{
Console.WriteLine("Please fill in the web url : ");
string webUrl = Console.ReadLine();

Console.WriteLine("Please fill in the name of the document library : ");
string documentLibraryName = Console.ReadLine();

if (webUrl != "")
{
using (SPSite site = new SPSite(webUrl))
{

SPWeb web = site.OpenWeb();
SPFile file = null;

//select the correct document library
foreach (SPList list in web.Lists)
{
if (list.Title.ToLower() == documentLibraryName.ToLower())
{
//loop all files and checkin if needed
foreach(SPListItem item in list.Items)
{
try
{

file = item.File;

if (file != null)
{
if (file.CheckOutStatus != SPFile.SPCheckOutStatus.None)
{
file.CheckIn("some comment");
file.Update();
Console.WriteLine("File checked-in = " + file.Name);
}
}
}
catch (Exception ex)
{
Console.WriteLine("Could not check-in file = " + file.Name + " - ERROR = " + ex.ToString());
}
}
}
}
}
}
Console.WriteLine("All documents are checked in, press enter to finish this program.");
Console.ReadLine();
}
}
}

Why didn't you use Manage Content And Structure? :p

That's also a possible solution if you have few documents in one folder. If you have a document library with 3000 documents in 100 different folders and subfolders then i should prefer this solution instead of clicking.

Great, nice little piece of code, that will be very handy.

Cheers.

thx Bart!

You can't use "Manage content and structure" in this case, cause "there is no check-in version of these items".

There are actually a substantial number of people who need to get in shape, but
you should not much like the thought of figuring
out in manifeste If you belong to that team maybe you've been informed that a superb alternative would be to get yourself a body weight bench and work out at your home.
