How to get the internal name of a column in a sharepoint list?

I was working on a SharePoint project, suddenly i got this error saying “The property or field not initialized”.

I searched over net and found that the internal name of a field or column in SharePoint list might be different.

Then I searched how to know the internal name of a field in sharepoint list and found the solution.

This is a powershell command which list out all the field with their internal name.

Here is the command for powershell:

$web = Get-SPWeb http://sharepointcafe:80
$list = $web.Lists[“MyListName”]
$list.fields | select Title, InternalName, Hidden, CanBeDeleted | sort title | ft -AutoSize

You might also get the internal names by client object model code.
