CAML.Query missing


Hi John,
This looks like a great idea and since we are embarking on a project which plans to expose some SharePoint documents to the web I would like to use it. However I've just downloaded the latest release and add a reference to the DLL I get a strange error which tells me there is no Query method. I can't quite believe that something so fundamental could be missing from the build this so I'm assuming I've done something wrong. Have you come across this ? I've attached a screen shot - just to prove I'm not nuts.

Sorry about the BMP I didn't realise the size when I posted it. I've attached a JPG of the same image.

I removed the CAML.Query method to make the framework more type-safe when passing additional parameters, such as the list of fields you are interested in, and ordering or grouping of results. Here is how you might go about the query you were trying to create:

public partial class Document : System.Web.UI.Page { protected void GetData() { CamlQuery q = new CamlQuery( CAML.OrderBy(CAML.FieldRef("Site Name"), CAML.FieldRef("Job Number")) + CAML.Where(CAML.Eq(CAML.FieldRef("Document Type"), CAML.Value("Job Sheet"))) ); // ... Console.WriteLine(q); }

This produces the following query string:

<OrderBy><FieldRef Name="Site_x0020_Name" /><FieldRef Name="Job_x0020_Number" /></OrderBy><Where><Eq><FieldRef Name="Dobumenct_x0020_type" /><Value Type="Text">Job Sheet</Value></Eq></Where>

But it also lets you do things like this:

using (SPSite site = new SPSite("http://myserver/mysite")) { using (SPWeb web = site.OpenWeb()) { List<SPListItem> items = q.Fetch(web); }}
