C# – List all files in a Sharepoint online Document Library


I am trying to list all the files from a Sharepoint Document List,

however I can't see to find a way to access the content list of the Document Library,

I was able to print the names of all the lists the Sharepoint contains, but not the files a Document Library has,

Here is my example code:

private static void FList(ICredentials credentials)
    ClientContext ctx = new ClientContext(" SHAREPOINT ADDRESS");
    ctx.Credentials = credentials; 

    List doclib = ctx.Web.Lists.GetByTitle("Reporting Rosters"); 

    foreach (var list in ctx.Web.Lists)

The result is a list of Sharepoint List, I would appreciate if someone could guide me on how to expose the file names inside the sharepoint Document Library

Best Solution

Here is the code that actually will iterate through Files , subfolders and files inside those subfolders

var credentials = new SharePointOnlineCredentials(username, securedPassword);
private static void Flist3(ICredentials credentials)

        ClientContext clientContext = new ClientContext("SHAREPOINT ADDRESS");
        clientContext.Credentials = credentials;  // passing credentials in case you need to work with Sharepoint Online
        using (clientContext)
            List list = clientContext.Web.Lists.GetByTitle("Document Library Name");
            CamlQuery camlQuery = new CamlQuery();
            camlQuery.ViewXml = @"<View Scope='Recursive'><Query></Query></View>";
            Folder ff = list.RootFolder;
            FolderCollection fcol = list.RootFolder.Folders; // here you will save the folder info inside a Folder Collection list
            List<string> lstFile = new List<string>();
            FileCollection ficol = list.RootFolder.Files;   // here you will save the File names inside a file Collection list 
            // ------informational -------
            Console.WriteLine("Root : " + ff.Name + "\r\n");
            Console.WriteLine(" ItemCount : " + ff.ItemCount.ToString());
            Console.WriteLine(" Folder Count : " + ff.Folders.Count.ToString());
            Console.WriteLine(" File Count : " + ff.Files.Count.ToString());

            Console.WriteLine(" URL : " + ff.ServerRelativeUrl);
            //---------Here you iterate through the files and not the folders that are in the root folder ------------
            foreach (ClientOM.File f in ficol)
                Console.WriteLine("Files Name:" + f.Name);
            //-------- here you will iterate through the folders and the files inside the folders that reside in the root folder----
            foreach (Folder f in fcol)
                Console.WriteLine("Folder Name : " + f.Name);
                FileCollection fileCol = f.Files;
                foreach (ClientOM.File file in fileCol)
                    Console.WriteLine(" File Name : " + file.Name);
