ViewCollection class

Specifies a collection of list views.

Namespace:  Microsoft.SharePoint.Client
Assemblies:   Microsoft.SharePoint.Client.Silverlight (in Microsoft.SharePoint.Client.Silverlight.dll);  Microsoft.SharePoint.Client.Phone (in Microsoft.SharePoint.Client.Phone.dll)  Microsoft.SharePoint.Client (in Microsoft.SharePoint.Client.dll)
public class ViewCollection : ClientObjectCollection<View>

Use the Views property of either the List or View class to return the collection of views for a list or the parent collection of views for a view. Use an indexer to return a single view from a collection of views. For example, if the collection is assigned to a variable named collViews, use collViews[index] in C#, or collViews(index) in Visual Basic, where index is the index number of the view in the collection, the name of the view, or the GUID for the view.

This code example adds a new view to the Tasks list of the specified site, and displays the list’s current views.

using System;
using Microsoft.SharePoint.Client;

namespace Microsoft.SDK.SharePointFoundation.Samples
{
    class ViewCollectionExample
    {
        static void Main()
        {
            string siteUrl = "http://MyServer/sites/MySiteCollection";

            ClientContext clientContext = new ClientContext(siteUrl);
            Web site = clientContext.Web;

            List targetList = site.Lists.GetByTitle("Tasks");
            ViewCollection collView = targetList.Views;

            ViewCreationInformation viewInfo = new ViewCreationInformation();
            viewInfo.Title = "MyView";
            collView.Add(viewInfo);

            clientContext.Load(collView);
            clientContext.ExecuteQuery();

            Console.WriteLine("Tasks list current views:\n\n");
            foreach (View oneView in collView)
               Console.WriteLine(oneView.Title); 
        }
    }
}
