You want to get the listform url of an item?

This post will be a smaller one, but maybe it helps you some day. In a customer project we had to send mails if an item has reached a defined status. In that mail the user should get an link to the item edit form, that he has not to search for the mentioned item. Therefore we provided a link to the item itself and its edit form. We used therefore this script:

string.Format("{0}/{1}?ID={2}", item.Web.Url, item.ParentList.Forms[PAGETYPE.PAGE_EDITFORM].Url, item.ID);

It puts together 3 item properties:

item.Web.Url = http://yourserver/sites/yoursite

item.ParentList.Forms[PAGETYPE.PAGE_EDITFORM].Url = Lists/Editform.aspx

item.ID = the ID of the item

Therefore we put it into the string. That’s it. The same can be done with new form and display form – you just have to change the pagetype.
