Struggling with Taxonomy in CSOM

The parts of the CSOM for updating Taxonomy fields are really cumbersome. I mean, look at this code, nicely provided by Vadim Gremyshev (@vgrem). To set a value in a taxonomy field we have to assemble a text representation, and adding a “fake” lookup id.

What is needed is a wrapper for handling Taxonomy fields. SPMeta2 and PnP don’t seem to have it yet.

Another issue that I have struggled with today was the missing Microsoft.SharePoint.Client.Taxonomy.dll. If you see this error (set customErrors=”Off” in the Web.config), then you have update the reference in the Visual Studio project:

missingtaxonomy-002

Open Properties for the reference called: Microsoft.SharePoint.Client.Taxonomy and ensure that Copy To Local is set to True:

missingtaxonomy-003

For some reason, this reference added through “App for SharePoint Web Toolkit” nuget package adds a reference to an assembly from your computers GAC.
