SPWeb.Groups property

Gets a collection that contains all the groups for the website.

Namespace:  Microsoft.SharePoint
Assembly:  Microsoft.SharePoint (in Microsoft.SharePoint.dll)
public SPGroupCollection Groups { get; }

Property value

Type: Microsoft.SharePoint.SPGroupCollection
A collection of SPGroup objects.

The following code example uses the Groups property to return the collection of groups for a specified site in the current site collection.

This example requires using directives (Imports in Microsoft Visual Basic) for the Microsoft.SharePoint and Microsoft.SharePoint.Utilities namespaces.

using (SPWeb oWebsite = SPContext.Current.Site.OpenWeb("Website_URL"))
{
    SPGroupCollection collGroups = oWebsite.Groups;
    foreach (SPGroup oGroup in collGroups)
    {
        Response.Write(SPEncode.HtmlEncode(oGroup.Name) + "<BR>");
    }
}
NoteNote

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.
