    SharePoint hidden lists

    Not so much a development question, but more of a head-keyboard moment which may amuse some of you with a more schadenfreudian sense of humour, I have just successfully create a SharePoint feature which creates a basic hidden list for user management.

    However, having waited twenty minutes for the solution to build and deploy (which it has done, perfectly successfully), I've realised that I've got no actual way of checking whether or not the list exists, as it's hidden and has broken inheritance so that no users can access it (only accessible via code).

    So now got to either go in and unhide it, and hope it exists, or stop debugging and write a deactivation handler to delete it in order to try debugging again - after putting in something to log whether it's succeeded.

    That worked, yep.

    I've actually given up on the hidden list idea now, I decided I was trying too hard to make it easy on myself (make sense of that if you can) and am just writing a fully custom solution.
