Why can’t I access the column in my SharePoint list programatically?

The answer might be simple. The first time a column is created and you title it “Column1″ the database records that. If you (or someone else) later changes the column title to “Column2″ your application will break. Why? Because behind the scenes that column is still “Column1″

the console app to interact with SharePoint 2010. The following video demonstrates how.

NOTE: This will not work for SharePoint Online

If you create an empty SharePoint 2010 project in Visual Studio 2010 and then add a visual Web Part (Sandboxed) you will get an error when you try to debug.

The Type or namespace name “DateTimeControl” does not exist in the namespace “Microsoft.SharePoint.WebControls”


However you can add the DateTimeControl to a farm solution visual web part.
