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

public bool IsAllowingAllPageLayouts { get; }

Property value

Type: System.Boolean
true if the available PageLayout objects for this PublishingWeb are the complete set; otherwise, false.

This example restricts the set of available page layouts used for creating pages in a publishing Web so that only page layouts associated with a specified content type are available.

Before using this example, verify that the associatedContentTypeId parameter is from a content type on the top-level Web site of the site.

using SPContentTypeId = Microsoft.SharePoint.SPContentTypeId;
using SPContentType = Microsoft.SharePoint.SPContentType;
using SPSite = Microsoft.SharePoint.SPSite;
using SPFile = Microsoft.SharePoint.SPFile;
using SPWeb = Microsoft.SharePoint.SPWeb;
using PublishingSite = Microsoft.SharePoint.Publishing.PublishingSite;
using PublishingWeb = Microsoft.SharePoint.Publishing.PublishingWeb;
using PageLayoutCollection = Microsoft.SharePoint.Publishing.PageLayoutCollection;
using PageLayout = Microsoft.SharePoint.Publishing.PageLayout;

namespace Microsoft.SDK.SharePointServer.Samples
    public static class PublishingWebCodeSamples
        public static void RestrictPageLayoutsByContentType(
PublishingWeb publishingWeb, 
SPContentTypeId associatedContentTypeId)
// Replace these variable values and input parameters with your own values.
bool excludeHiddenLayouts = true;
bool resetAllSubsitesToInherit = true;

// Validate the input parameters.
if (null == publishingWeb)
    throw new System.ArgumentNullException("publishingWeb");

SPSite site = publishingWeb.Web.Site;
PublishingSite publishingSite = new PublishingSite(site);

// Retrieve a collection of all page layouts in the site collection
// that match the content type.
SPContentType associatedContentType = publishingSite.ContentTypes[associatedContentTypeId];
if (null == associatedContentType)
    throw new System.ArgumentException(
        "The SPContentTypeId did not match an SPContentType in the SPSite.RootWeb",

PageLayoutCollection pageLayoutsByContentType = 
    publishingSite.GetPageLayouts(associatedContentType, excludeHiddenLayouts);

// Update the Web site to use these page layouts when creating pages.


// Verify the expected results. Note: This is not required. It demonstrates
// the results of calling the SetAvailablePageLayouts method.

PageLayout[] availablePageLayouts = publishingWeb.GetAvailablePageLayouts();
foreach (PageLayout pageLayout in availablePageLayouts)
        pageLayout.AssociatedContentType.Id == associatedContentTypeId);
