Creating Interactive SharePoint List Views Using the JavaScript Client Object Model

Tue, 31 Jul 2012 02:05:00 GMT

There are some situations where you prefer to allow users to directly interact with list items directly within the row of the list view. Normally interaction occurs through the edit control block (ECB), the ribbon, or one of the list item forms. However, sometimes the action is a simple toggle activity that the user should simply be able to directly initiate directly from the list view UI. Here is a general approach for enabling this. There are four components: 1. The XSLT to cause render the interface on each list item 2. A JavaScript file to handle the interaction using the SharePoint Client Side Object Model for JavaScript 3. (Optional) a form to handle optional input for the change 4. Some images for the interaction In this example, we will allow the user to toggle the Status column of a document library between to arbitrary values “True” and “False”, and specify a comment in the comment history when toggling the value to “False”. Using this method you can allow the users to put a toggle switch on any list item, and have it write that value back to the list item directly from the list view. Steps Create a document library, or navigate to an existing one. Modify the desired SharePoint view using SharePoint Designer (See: Create a custom list view using SharePoint Designer). Using Table layout tools, add a column to hold the toggle XSL (not another data column, just a layout column). Add the following snippet to the column in code view, which looks at the Status column and displays the appropriate toggle UI, and wraps it with an OnClick event handler with the ID of the list item.
