Enable Full Toolbar on an XSLT List View Web Part (XsltListViewWebPart) / on a list

Enabling toolbar for a list programmatically means to enable it on xslt list view web part..Here’s the code:

private void EnableToolbarOnXsltListViewWP(string viewName, string listName, string webUrl)
            using (var spSite = new SPSite(webUrl))
                using (SPWeb web = spSite.OpenWeb())
                    spSite.AllowUnsafeUpdates = true;
                    web.AllowUnsafeUpdates = true;
                    SPList spList = web.Lists[listName];
                    SPView spView = spList.Views[viewName];
                    SPLimitedWebPartManager spLimitedWebPartManager = web.GetLimitedWebPartManager(spView.Url, PersonalizationScope.Shared);
                    foreach (System.Web.UI.WebControls.WebParts.WebPart webPart in spLimitedWebPartManager.WebParts)
                        if (webPart.GetType().Name.Equals("XsltListViewWebPart") && webPart.Title == Config.ListName_MyCVs)
                                MethodInfo ensureViewMethod = webPart.GetType().GetMethod("EnsureView", BindingFlags.Instance | BindingFlags.NonPublic);
                                object[] ensureViewParams = { };
                                ensureViewMethod.Invoke(webPart, ensureViewParams);
                                FieldInfo viewFieldInfo = webPart.GetType().GetField("view", BindingFlags.NonPublic | BindingFlags.Instance);
                                var view = viewFieldInfo.GetValue(webPart) as SPView;
                                Type[] toolbarMethodParamTypes = { Type.GetType("System.String") };
                                MethodInfo setToolbarTypeMethod = view.GetType().GetMethod("SetToolbarType", BindingFlags.Instance | BindingFlags.NonPublic, null, toolbarMethodParamTypes, null);
                                object[] setToolbarParam = { "ShowToolbar" };
                                setToolbarTypeMethod.Invoke(view, setToolbarParam);
                            catch (Exception ex)
                                Log.LogError("MyProjName", ex);
                    spSite.AllowUnsafeUpdates = false;

Hope this helps-

    Hi Rehman,

    the hiding of the toolbar works perfect for me thank you. Excellent code!!

    Kind regards

    This approach doesnt seem to work without problems. Running this code with users that do not have owner rights causes an “access denied” error when (for example) clicking on the column headings for sorting… Any ideas?
