There's a page where i need to show the latest created/uploaded image from a picture library. I did the following URL to retrieve that information to me (in JSOM):

_api/web/lists/getbytitle('cardapios')/items?filter=&$top=1&$orderby=Created desc&$select=EncodedAbsUrl

Question: Now i need to display this image in my page(subsite). What's the best way to do it? Is there a simple way to call it? The page is empty, its only purpose is to show that image.

Currently i'm reading some materials at MSDN:



I've already searched in many articles, but i'm still not understanding the concept. If you know any material that mighty be good for me to study, please leave a comment as well.

  • You can add an <img> tag. And then set the src property to the image url you retrieved using REST call. Commented Dec 23, 2014 at 13:55

You can edit page and add following tag

<img id="latestImage" alt="Latest Image" />

Then add a script editor webpart and use following snippet

var siteUrl = window.location.protocol + "//" + window.location.host + _spPageContextInfo.siteServerRelativeUrl;

    url: siteUrl + "/_api/web/lists/getbytitle('test')/items?filter=&$top=1&$orderby=Created%20desc&$select=EncodedAbsUrl",
    type: "GET",    
    headers: { 
        "accept": "application/json;odata=verbose",
        "X-RequestDigest": jQuery("#__REQUESTDIGEST").val()
    success: function(d) {
        var stringData = JSON.stringify(d);
        var jsonObject = JSON.parse(stringData);
        var results = jsonObject.d.results;
        for(i = 0; i < results.length;i++) {
            jQuery('#latestImage').attr('src', results[i]["EncodedAbsUrl"]);
    error: function() {
  • Thanks, it worked! Just for clarification, my code is how it follows:<script src="http://ajax.aspnetcdn.com/ajax/jquery/jquery-1.5.js"></script> <script type="text/javascript"> // The code you posted here </script> Commented Dec 23, 2014 at 14:41
