I tried this code and paste to the content editor in sharepoint but then nothing came out. Just a blank space. I tried to inspect the marquee is working working but it just not showing the item it suppose to show. Please help.

    <script src="http://jqueryjs.googlecode.com/files/jquery-1.3.2.min.js" type="text/javascript"></script>

<script type="text/javascript"> 
$(document).ready(function() {   

    var soapEnv ="<soapenv:Envelope xmlns:soapenv='http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/envelope/'> \
                <soapenv:Body> \
                     <GetListItems xmlns='http://schemas.microsoft.com/sharepoint/soap/'> \
                        <listName>News</listName> \
                        <viewFields> \
                            <ViewFields> \
                               <FieldRef Name='Title' /> \
                           </ViewFields> \
                        </viewFields> \
                    </GetListItems> \
                </soapenv:Body> \

            url: "/_vti_bin/lists.asmx",
            type: "POST",
            dataType: "xml",
            data: soapEnv,
            complete: Result,
            contentType: "text/xml; charset=\"utf-8\""

    function Result(xData, status) {
        $(xData.responseXML).find("z\\:row").each(function() {
            var liHtml = "<li>" + $(this).attr("ows_Title") + "</li>";
            $("# news ").append(liHtml);

<marquee onmouseover="this.stop();" onmouseout="this.start();">
                <ul id="news">  </ul>

         UL#news {
                     WIDTH: 620px;
                      OVERFLOW: hidden

          UL#news LI {        
                       WIDTH: 600px;    
                       DISPLAY: inline;
                       HEIGHT: 99px;

I already check the list name and field ref but still it didnt give any outcome. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.

  • What is the reason you are using SOAP and not REST? And what is the reason you are using a jQuery version from july 2013? Dec 14, 2016 at 7:45
  • Im just trying my luck, Im still new with this, so I just try anything that was working for as long as I can see it working and learn from this. Why? Could you guide me on this?

$("# news ").append(liHtml);
