Add, Get and Delete Quick Launch Navigation using c#

In this blog, we have discussed about adding, retrieving, and deleting the SharePoint online quick launch navigation menu using the c# server Object model. Follow the below coding to get the result.

  1. Add new term in quick launch:

          Add the below code in your Program.cs.

namespace GetNavigationNode

{

    class Program

    {

        static void Main(string[] args)

        {

            string userName = “user1@tenantname.onmicrosoft.com”;

            string password = “********”;

            string siteUrl = “https:// tenantname.sharepoint.com/sites/AssociateSite”;

            SecureString securePassword = new SecureString();

            foreach (char c in password)

            {

                securePassword.AppendChar(c);

            }

            var credentials = new SharePointOnlineCredentials(userName, securePassword);

            using (ClientContext clientContext = new ClientContext(siteUrl))

            {

                clientContext.Credentials = credentials;

                NavigationNodeCollection qlNavNodeColl = clientContext.Web.Navigation.QuickLaunch;

                clientContext.Load(clientContext.Web);

                clientContext.Load(qlNavNodeColl);

                clientContext.ExecuteQuery();

                NavigationNodeCreationInformation newNode = new NavigationNodeCreationInformation();

                newNode.Title = “Search”;

                newNode.Url = “https://www.google.com”;

                qlNavNodeColl.Add(newNode);

                clientContext.ExecuteQuery();

            }

        }

    }

}

After running the code:

2. Get Navigation Node:

        Add the below code to get all the term from quicklunch.

using (ClientContext clientContext = new ClientContext(siteUrl))

            {

                clientContext.Credentials = credentials;

                NavigationNodeCollection qlNavNodeColl = clientContext.Web.Navigation.QuickLaunch;

                clientContext.Load(clientContext.Web);

                clientContext.Load(qlNavNodeColl);

                clientContext.ExecuteQuery();

                foreach (NavigationNode navToDelete in qlNavNodeColl) {

                    var navNodeTitle = navToDelete.Title;

                    Console.WriteLine(“Navigation Node is : ” + navNodeTitle);

                }

            }

3. Delete Navigation Node:

Add below code to remove the quick launch term

            string userName = “user1@tenantname.onmicrosoft.com”;

            string password = “********”;

            string siteUrl = “https:// tenantname.sharepoint.com/sites/AssociateSite”;

            SecureString securePassword = new SecureString();

            foreach (char c in password)

            {

                securePassword.AppendChar(c);

            }

            var credentials = new SharePointOnlineCredentials(userName, securePassword);

            using (ClientContext clientContext = new ClientContext(siteUrl))

            {

                clientContext.Credentials = credentials;

                NavigationNodeCollection qlNavNodeColl = clientContext.Web.Navigation.QuickLaunch;

                clientContext.Load(clientContext.Web);

                clientContext.Load(qlNavNodeColl);

                clientContext.ExecuteQuery();

                foreach (NavigationNode navToDelete in qlNavNodeColl) {

                    var title = navToDelete.Title;

                    if (title == “Search”) {

                        navToDelete.DeleteObject();

                        clientContext.ExecuteQuery();

                    }

                }

            }

        }

After running the code:

Conclusion:
