I am using SharePoint 2010, and I want to create Items in my List based on the url parameters(GET):


In this example, my new item would be:
Code: 123
User: xpto

Is it possible to do this?

Can I have some code example please so I can try?


Doable. what you need to create is a javascript code that does the following:

  1. Parse the URL and save code (into a variable) and user (into another variable) This link my help you get that https://stackoverflow.com/questions/901115/how-can-i-get-query-string-values-in-javascript
  2. Pass the 2 variables with the site URL and list name to the following function:

function createListItem(siteUrl,listName,code,user) {

var clientContext = new SP.ClientContext(siteUrl);
var oList = clientContext.get_web().get_lists().getByTitle(listName);

var itemCreateInfo = new SP.ListItemCreationInformation();
this.oListItem = oList.addItem(itemCreateInfo);

oListItem.set_item('code', code);
oListItem.set_item('user', user);



clientContext.executeQueryAsync(Function.createDelegate(this, this.onQuerySucceeded), Function.createDelegate(this, this.onQueryFailed));


function onQuerySucceeded() {

alert('Item created: ' + oListItem.get_id());


function onQueryFailed(sender, args) {

alert('Request failed. ' + args.get_message() + '\n' + args.get_stackTrace());


  • does SP.ClientContext depends of some plugin?

  • 1
    you may need to Add ExecuteOrDelayUntilScriptLoaded method before calling the function. ExecuteOrDelayUntilScriptLoaded(createListItem, "sp.js"); or SP.SOD.executeFunc('sp.js', 'SP.ClientContext', createListItem); May 4 '16 at 19:47
  • what is this 'sp.js' ?

  • SP.js is the JavaScript file used for the ECMA Client Object Model. This file is necessary to work with SharePoint Client Object Model. May 4 '16 at 20:28
  • So the value is always 'sp.js' ?
