How to delete SharePoint List Item programmatically using C#.Net


Below is a code snippet to programmatically delete a SharePoint List Item using the Server Object Model.

Note - Please replace the place holders with actual values before using the code.

Following code loops through all items in list and deletes item if Title is the same as matching Title.

  using(SPSite site = new SPSite("http://SHAREPOINT_SITE_URL"))
{
	using(SPWeb web = site.RootWeb)
	{
		SPList list = web.Lists["LIST_NAME"];
		for(int i = 0; i < list.Items.Count ; i++)
		{
			SPListItem item = list.Items[i];
			if(item["Title"] == "MATCHING_TITLE")
			{
				list.Items.Delete(i);
			}
		}
	}
}


Client Object Model and REST is a more preferred and fast way for deleting SharePoint content.
