Is it possible to retrieve lists with template "Custom List" and display it in a jqxListBox or div?

2 Answers 2


Below is a sample code to get you started. The rest end point used in the request below will return lists based on Template 100 (Generic List)

 <div id="jqxListBox"> </div>
    var webUrl= _spPageContextInfo.webAbsoluteUrl;
    var myList=[];
        url: webUrl+"/_api/web/lists?$filter=BaseTemplate%20eq%20100",
        method: "GET",
        headers: {
            "accept": "application/json;odata=verbose",
        success: function (data) {
         $(data.d.results).each(function () {
      myList.push("<li>"  + $(this)[0].Title + "</li>");                         


  • Thankyou! The only thing i had to modify was the url: _spPageContextInfo.siteAbsoluteUrl + "/_api/web/lists?$filter=BaseTemplate%20eq%20100",

SPSiteDataQuery sdq = new SPSiteDataQuery();
sdq.Lists = "<Lists ServerTemplate=\"101\" />";//specify template id here
sdq.ViewFields = "<ListProperty Name=\"Title\" /><FieldRef Name=\"Physical_x0020_Location\" /><FieldRef Name=\"LinkFilename\" />";
sdq.Webs = "<Webs Scope=\"Recursive\">";
dt = web.GetSiteData(sdq);

    This does not show how to list lists of a certain type in a list Commented Nov 25, 2015 at 9:56
  • And its server side code, you don't have SPSiteDataQuery CSOM Commented Nov 25, 2015 at 11:51
