How can I get Value from Person or Group Type Field from a List form. Context here is a SharePoint list. the point is I need to do this for validation purpose. So I need the value entered in this field by the user. I have tried using SPutility but it's not working.

Any other way possible?

  • Is the REST-API an option? – Patrick Sep 2 '16 at 12:30
  • Yes why not. But the point is I need to do this for validation purpose. So I need the value entered in this field by the user (Not the values from the list items). – mohd tahir Sep 2 '16 at 12:32
  • I think JQuery's the easiest approach for validation. What is your rule? – Erin L Sep 2 '16 at 15:02

I found a work-around for this. Though this can't be done with sputility. This is how we can pick value from Person or group/ People picker field :

This might help someone else.

function getItems(url) {
$.ajax({
    url: _spPageContextInfo.webAbsoluteUrl + url,
    type: "GET",
    headers: {
        "accept": "application/json;odata=verbose",
    },
    success: function (data) {            
    //gets your data in console
    console.log(data.d.results);
    },
    error: function (error) {
        alert(JSON.stringify(error));
    }
});
}

var urlForAllItems = "/_api/Web/Lists/GetByTitle('ListName')/Items?$select=ID,SpPerson/Title,SpPerson/Id&$expand=SpPerson";
getItems(urlForAllItems);
  • This doesn't solves my problem. Not the expected answer sorry. I need the value entered by the user currently for this purpose. That too from people picker filed. – mohd tahir Sep 9 '16 at 5:41
  • can you elaborate what validation you want. – Sunil Sahu Sep 9 '16 at 8:14
  • Please read my question and the answer which I have given again. In brief I just wanted to pick the value entered by user in the Newform.aspx for a list.(Field's data type is Person/Group). – mohd tahir Sep 9 '16 at 8:51
