This sample sets a start and end date for a ScheduledItem object and schedules the item so that it is published when the start date is reached and it is unpublished when the end date is reached.

Before compiling and running this sample, verify that the SPListItem is a list item in a document library that supports scheduling.

using ScheduledItem = Microsoft.SharePoint.Publishing.ScheduledItem;
using SPModerationStatusType = Microsoft.SharePoint.SPModerationStatusType;
using SPListItem = Microsoft.SharePoint.SPListItem;
using DateTime = System.DateTime;

          DateTime startDate, DateTime endDate)
            // Set the input parameter values with
            // your own values.
            // validate the input parameters
            if (null == listItem)
                throw new System.ArgumentNullException("listItem");

            // Get the ScheduledItem wrapper for the SPListItem
            // that was passed in.
            ScheduledItem scheduledItem = null;
            if (ScheduledItem.IsScheduledItem(listItem))
                scheduledItem = ScheduledItem.GetScheduledItem(listItem);
                throw new System.ArgumentException
                  ("The document library containing this SPListItem must support scheduling", 

            // Set and save the date values.
            scheduledItem.StartDate = startDate;
            scheduledItem.EndDate = endDate;

            // Schedule the item so that the StartDate and EndDate
            // take effect.
