ScheduledItem.GetScheduledItem Method

Retrieves an instance of the ScheduledItem class that wraps the specified SPListItem class.

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

public static ScheduledItem GetScheduledItem(
	SPListItem sourceListItem


Type: Microsoft.SharePoint.SPListItem

The SPListItem to wrap in a ScheduledItem instance.

Return Value

Type: Microsoft.SharePoint.Publishing.ScheduledItem
A ScheduledItem instance that wraps the specified SPListItem.


Invalid SPListItem. The SPListItem provided is not compatible with a ScheduledItem. This indicates that the SPListItem is either not part of a document library that supports scheduling, or does not have start and end dates, which are required for scheduling.


The sourceListItem parameter cannot be a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic).

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date for a ScheduledItem object and schedules the item so that it is published when the start date is reached and it is unpublished when the end date is reached.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 SPModerationStatusType = Microsoft.SharePoint.SPModerationStatusType;
using SPListItem = Microsoft.SharePoint.SPListItem;

            // that was passed in.

                  ("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.
