SPItem class

Abstract base class that constitutes the data transport item upon which forms operate.

Namespace:  Microsoft.SharePoint
Assembly:  Microsoft.SharePoint (in Microsoft.SharePoint.dll)

public abstract class SPItem : SPSecurableObject

The SPItem class provides direct access to a list item as the data backing a store, such as for site provisioning or workflow, allowing the list-based forms infrastructure to be extended so that it can be reused in capacities other than working with list items. The forms infrastructure fundamentally operates against one set of data (a list item) and one set of metadata (a list field collection).

Any public static (Shared in Visual Basic) members of this type are thread safe. Any instance members are not guaranteed to be thread safe.
