Gets or sets the attributes of the view used in the query.
Assembly: Microsoft.SharePoint (in Microsoft.SharePoint.dll)
The ViewAttributes property contains attributes of the View element that is used in Collaborative Application Markup Language. For example, if the Scope attribute is set to Recursive (Scope="Recursive"), the query displays all the files within a document library, including ones in subfolders. If it is set to anything else, the query displays only files in the top folder.

The following code example sets a recursive scope for a query and displays all files contained within a specified document library.
Dim webSite As SPWeb = SPContext.Current.Site.AllWebs("Site_Name") Try Dim list As SPList = webSite.Lists("DocLib_Name") Dim view As SPView = list.Views("View_Name") Dim query As New SPQuery(view) query.ViewAttributes = "Scope=""Recursive""" Dim myItems As SPListItemCollection = list.GetItems(query) Dim item As SPListItem For Each item In myItems Response.Write((SPEncode.HtmlEncode(item("Name")) + "<BR>")) Next item Finally webSite.Dispose() End Try
Certain objects implement the IDisposable interface, and you must avoid retaining these objects in memory after they are no longer needed. For information about good coding practices, see Disposing Objects.
