Session 2: Programmatically Accessing, Updating, and Using the Terms Contained within the Managed Metadata Term Store

Presented by: Ulyssess Ludwig

Running Time: 65 min

New to SharePoint 2010, the term store presents a corporate taxonomy from a centrally managed location. With this powerful new component of SharePoint comes a whole new level of complexity from a programming perspective. Any programmer new to SharePoint 2010 will learn that the taxonomy controls, which are similar to SharePoint lookup columns, do not behave in the same way as standard SharePoint controls because the underlying data is stored in a more complex manner and multiple fields are involved with the support of each field consumed by SharePoint lists and libraries. In this session, you'll learn how to access and create terms using the SharePoint object model and how to add and interact with taxonomy controls to customize ASPX application pages.
