Useful Information: Determining if the web service return is a File or a Folder in GetListItems (Lists.asmx) #in #SP2010 #SharePoint

Just a useful quick tip I noticed whilst answering a question for a client the other day.

In the return of the GetListItems method of the Lists.asmx Web Service, one of the fields is:

  • ows_FSObjType

This essentially allows us to determine of the return is either a File or a Folder.

The detail of the return is as follows:

  • <Item ID>;#<File System Object Type>
  • Example Data: 1;#0

Options for the File System Object Type:

  • 0 = File
  • 1 = Folder
