Hi I want to deploy jslink file along with XSLTListView webpart inside a page.

The webpart is deployed in the page like the following:

 <WebPartPages:WebPartZone ID="main" Title="my zone" FrameType="TitleBarOnly" runat="server">
            <WebPartPages:XsltListViewWebPart runat="server" ID="AnnouncementsList" Title="Announcements" ListUrl="Lists/Announcements" ChromeType="None" JSLi >

How can I add a property for JSLink to this webpart? I can't seem to find it in the intellisense.

You won't get it there.

If you open a list view page in SPD, you'll get markup like below:

<WebPartPages:XsltListViewWebPart runat="server">
<View Name="{955609D0-F518-43BD-ADDC-FEAB64B9F951}">
<JSLink>clienttemplates.js</JSLink><XslLink Default="TRUE">main.xsl</XslLink>
<--- Some Code omitted for brevity --->

As you can see, JSLink is applied to a view and not the webpart itself. Make sure you have a view tag within the webpart.

  • Thank you, so the Name for the view, where does it come from? How do I get that view name? Do I get it from the deployed list? Dec 10, 2015 at 14:42
  • Instead of you writing the markup, you can let SP auto generate the markup by editing the page and adding the list view web part directly from designer. Or you could add it from the browser as well by adding a Web part zone in the page, adding the web part and just editing the web part to fill the jslink property.

  • Would need some more details. Are you creating an add in to deploy a list? Try following this article msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/office/jj220045.aspx? You can also add the list to a page and see the automatic markup created. There you'll have the view tag.
