You can read listitem properties from following code:

function retrieveListItems(siteUrl) {
    var clientContext = new SP.ClientContext(siteUrl);
    var oList = clientContext.get_web().get_lists().getByTitle('Announcements');

    var camlQuery = new SP.CamlQuery();
        '<View><Query><Where><Geq><FieldRef Name=\'ID\'/>' + 
        '<Value Type=\'Number\'>1</Value></Geq></Where></Query>' + 
    this.collListItem = oList.getItems(camlQuery);

        Function.createDelegate(this, this.onQuerySucceeded), 
        Function.createDelegate(this, this.onQueryFailed)

function onQuerySucceeded(sender, args) {
    var listItemInfo = '';
    var listItemEnumerator = collListItem.getEnumerator();

    while (listItemEnumerator.moveNext()) {
        var oListItem = listItemEnumerator.get_current();
        listItemInfo += '\nID: ' + oListItem.get_id() + 
            '\nTitle: ' + oListItem.get_item('Title') + 
            '\nBody: ' + oListItem.get_item('Body');


function onQueryFailed(sender, args) {
    alert('Request failed. ' + args.get_message() + 
        '\n' + args.get_stackTrace());

Also you can read current user login name from:

<script src="/SiteAssets/jquery.SPServices-2013.02a.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
<script src="/SiteAssets/jquery.js" type="text/javascript"></script>

<script type="text/javascript">
  var userid= _spPageContextInfo.userId;
  var requestUri = _spPageContextInfo.webAbsoluteUrl + "/_api/web/getuserbyid(" + userid + ")";
  var requestHeaders = { "accept" : "application/json;odata=verbose" };
    url : requestUri,
    contentType : "application/json;odata=verbose",
    headers : requestHeaders,
    success : onSuccess,
    error : onError

  function onSuccess(data, request){
    var loginName = data.d.Title;

  function onError(error) {

So you can modify the code snippets according to your business logic.

  • yes my list contains list of user name.totally i have 4 list. i need to check in which list the user name is present or not.

  • 1
    You can check one by one and replace the list name.

If you don't mind using thrid party libraries, then I created SharepointPlus that is a JavaScript API to deal with Sharepoint.

With it (and jQuery), the code will be:

// we test each of the lists
$(["Test A", "Test B", "Test C", "Test D"]).each(function(i, list) {
  // we use the WHERE clause "Name = '[Me]'" where "Name" is the column name of the user
  // '[Me]' will automatically target the current user
  $SP().list(list).get({fields:"ID",where:"Name = '[Me]'",rowlimit:1}, function(data) {
    // if data.length is bigger than 0 it means we found the user in that list
    if (data.length>0) alert("You're in the list "+list)

Check current login user is present in custom list or not

<script type="text/javascript" src="http://code.jquery.com/jquery-1.8.2.min.js"></script>
    <script type="text/javascript" src="http://azurespdev01:7491/SiteAssets/jquery.SPServices-0.7.2.js"></script>

    <script type="text/javascript">
    // var userId = $().SPServices.SPGetCurrentUser({
    // fieldName: "UserId"});  // U cant match user name record with current user

    $(document).ready(function() {
    var userid = _spPageContextInfo.userId;// use userid to match
    var query = '<Query>' +
    '<Where>' +
    '<Eq>' +
    '<FieldRef Name="Columname" />' +
    '<Value Type="Lookup">' + userid + '</Value>' +
    '</Eq>' +
    '</Where>' +

    operation: "GetListItems",
    async: false,
    listName: "ListName",
    CAMLViewFields: "<ViewFields><FieldRef Name='columname' /></ViewFields>",
    completefunc: function(xData, Status) {    
    var matchFound = false; //define flag

    //loop through all rows
    $(xData.responseXML).SPFilterNode("z:row").each(function() {
    var split = ($(this).attr("ows_User"));

    var id = split.split(';')[0];
        if (userid == id) {
            matchFound = true; //set the flag to true indicating matched record

        document.getElementById("imageHolder").innerHTML="<img src='/YourImage.jpg' alt=''/>";// show ur foto
        document.getElementById("imageHolder").innerHTML="<img src='/NOimage.jpg' alt=''/>";// show others foto
