	SPQuery query,
	string viewName


Type: Microsoft.SharePoint.SPQuery

A query that specifies which items to select.

The GUID that specifies the view. This value must be enclosed in braces ({/}) and all uppercase. This value can be generated by using View.ID.ToString("B").ToUpper().

Return value

Type: Microsoft.SharePoint.SPListItemCollection
The list items.

The properties of the view that is specified by the viewName parameter override the properties that are specified in the query object that is passed through the query parameter. For example, if the query object includes a <Where> tag that specifies only items containing a particular column value, while the view specifies to return all items, this method retrieves all of the items.
