SPDocumentLibrary.CheckedOutFiles property

Gets the collection of files that are uploaded to the document library but are not checked in.

Namespace:  Microsoft.SharePoint
Assembly:  Microsoft.SharePoint (in Microsoft.SharePoint.dll)
public IList<SPCheckedOutFile> CheckedOutFiles { get; }

Property value

Type: System.Collections.Generic.IList<SPCheckedOutFile>
An IList<T> object that contains SPCheckedOutFile objects with information about files that have been uploaded but not checked in.

When someone creates a new file or adds a new file to a library that requires check-out, the file is initially checked out. The person who creates or adds the file must check it in before other people can use it. The CheckedOutFiles property returns a collection of SPCheckedOutFile objects with information about files that have been added to the library but have not been checked in.

The following example is a console application that opens the root Web site, finds all document libraries that require documents to be checked out before they can be modified, and prints a report with information about any document that was uploaded but not checked in.

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

namespace Test
   class ConsoleApp
      static void Main(string[] args)
         using (SPSite site = new SPSite("http://localhost"))
            using (SPWeb web = site.OpenWeb())
               Console.WriteLine("Documents Uploaded But Not Checked In");
               Console.WriteLine("\n{0,-20} {1,-25} {2}", "Library", "File", "Uploaded by");
               Console.WriteLine(new string('-', 70));

               foreach (SPList list in web.Lists)
                  // If users are required to check out documents...
                  if (list.ForceCheckout)
                     SPDocumentLibrary library = (SPDocumentLibrary)list;

                     // ...print information about files uploaded but not checked in.
                     IList<SPCheckedOutFile> files = library.CheckedOutFiles;
                     foreach (SPCheckedOutFile file in files)
                        Console.WriteLine("{0,-20} {1,-25} {2}", 
                            file.DirName, file.LeafName, file.CheckedOutBy);
         Console.Write("\nPress ENTER to continue...");
