I am trying to build a page in which I can then add a Query String to pull the specific document library, showing all of the folder and files in it. Then from there I am going to create a webpart (using sharepoint developer) to show that library on another page that has multiple webparts. I am running into problems figuring out how to use the page to create the query string needed. Anyone have suggestions?


Out of the box I don't think its possible. You can custom code a webpart which can read the library name from the querystring and display the result in a grid. But that will take good amount of coding effort.

The easiest approach is to edit the page, and add the library webparts. And then use JavaScript to read the querystring and display approrpiate list view webpart.

  • So if for instance I have 40 libraries with 40 url strings, I would use JavaScript to read the query string of one of the 40 webparts on that page and display the one needed? Is that what I'm reading here? – Ike Rebout Dec 31 '14 at 0:31
  • Also what would the querystring of the library be? I am for instance using Facility to create the 40 other pages. This is hooked to a database. If I can't chage the Facility number is there a way to make the library pull from this? Or could I add the document library url to the database and pull the library in from that in a webpart (i.e. Facility 40 is the url string, but it pulls the library attached to that facility id using the URL?) – Ike Rebout Dec 31 '14 at 3:36
  • Amal how would the javascript look. – Ike Rebout Jul 16 '15 at 4:35
