SharePoint to API Translation Guide

Posted Thursday, August 21, 2008 5:16 PM by CoreyRoth

As anyone that has worked with SharePoint knows, there is next to zero correlation to what something is called in the SharePoint UI with what it is called in the SharePoint API.  A lot of this is due to the fact that they changed the name for most everything between versions 2 and 3.  This will be an ongoing post and I will add to it as I think of things. 

SharePoint UI Term SharePoint API Class
Site Collection SPSite
Site SPWeb
Business Data Catalog ApplicationRegistry
Site Column SPField
Permission Level SPRoleDefinition
Alternate Access Path SPAlternateUrl
Top Level Site RootWeb
My Sites QuickLink
Content Approval Moderation

Think of something I am missing?  Leave a comment so that I can get it added.
