Modifying a list by its ID

The following examples modify a list by its ID.

Native API

 

First, you get an instance of the ListsManager class. Then, you use GetLists to assure that the list with the specified Id exists.

Then, you modify the title of the list with newTitle. Finally, you call SaveChanges to save all changes.

Fluent API

 

First, you check whether a list with the specified ID exists using the plural facade of the list.

NOTE: If there is no item with the specified Id, List(listId) throws an exception of type ItemNotFoundException.

Then, you modify the title of the list with newTitle. Finally, you call SaveChanges to save all changes.
