Create Media Item Programmatically.

In this post we would learn how to create media item programmatically in sitecore.
Many times we need to create media items programmatically like pdf,images,video,audio
from physical file ,so here I am sharing some code
through which we can create media item programmatically.
public Item GetAndCreateFile(string sitecorePath, string sourcePath, string mediaItemName)
        {
            try
            {
                Sitecore.Data.Database master =
Sitecore.Configuration.
Factory.GetDatabase(“master”);
                Sitecore.Data.Items.Item myItem =
master.GetItem(sitecorePath +
“/” + mediaItemName);
                if (myItem != null)
                {
                    return myItem;
                }
                //
Create the options
                Sitecore.Resources.Media.MediaCreatorOptions options
=
new
Sitecore.Resources.Media.
MediaCreatorOptions();
                //
Store the file in the database, not as a file
                options.FileBased = false;
                //
Remove file extension from item name
               
options.IncludeExtensionInItemName =
false;
                //
Overwrite any existing file with the same name
                options.KeepExisting = false;
                //
Do not make a versioned template
                options.Versioned = false;
                //
set the path
                options.Destination =
sitecorePath;
                options.Destination =
options.Destination +
“/” + mediaItemName;
                //
Set the database
                options.Database =
Sitecore.Configuration.
Factory.GetDatabase(“master”);
                //
Now create the file
                Sitecore.Resources.Media.MediaCreator creator
=
new
Sitecore.Resources.Media.
MediaCreator();
                MediaItem mediaItem = creator.CreateFromFile(sourcePath, options);
                if (mediaItem != null)
                {
                    return mediaItem;                }
            }
            catch (Exception ex)
            {
                System.IO.File.AppendAllText(“log the error”’);
            }
            return null;

Now Its easy to create media item programmatically.

Happy Coding!!
