Property Value

Type: Microsoft.SharePoint.SPChangeToken
An SPChangeToken object that represents the last change token.

The change token that is returned is the value of the ChangeToken property of the SPChange object indexed at Count – 1 in the change collection. When you are fetching changes in batches, you can use this token as the starting point for the next batch.

The following example is a simple console application that demonstrates how to retrieve all changes from the current change log.

using System;
using Microsoft.SharePoint;

namespace Test
   class ConsoleApp
      static void Main(string[] args)
         using (SPSite siteCollection = new SPSite("http://localhost"))
            long total = 0;
            SPChangeToken token = null;

            // Get the first batch of changes.
            SPChangeCollection changes = siteCollection.ContentDatabase.GetChanges(token);
            // Loop until the end of the log is reached.
            while (changes.Count > 0)
               total += changes.Count;

               // Go get another batch.
               token = changes.LastChangeToken;
               changes = siteCollection.ContentDatabase.GetChanges(token);

            Console.WriteLine("{0:#,#} changes", total);
         Console.Write("\nPress ENTER to continue...");
