Working with lookup values in SharePoint Lists

Working with SharePoint lists I often use lookup values. But when I write C# solutions for lists I have some difficulties with LookUp Values. Trying to get LookUp Value as string it looks like "213;#lookup value".

At first I tried to use regular expressions. But some later I knew about commands for working with lookup list values. So here they are.


And you don’t need neither RegEx, nor Pattern or any other things. Things are simple.


If you have multiple Lookup Values, you should use SPFieldLookupValueCollection

For example:



  1. What is myGood in multilookup.
    Is is a list or an array.

  2. “myGood.vendor” is a string variable. As a result it is something like this: “nike, asics, reebok, adidas”
