I want to fetch the SharePoint List in my Asp.net Application.How can I do using JavaScript or Jquery?


I suggest to use the SharePoint web services to access the SharePoint lists from your application (regardless what's the technology that you use) as the following:

  • Create a service reference to access SharePoint lists
  • Open or create a Visual Studio project.
  • In Solution Explorer, right-click the References node, and then click Add Service Reference.
  • In the Address box, type the URL to the target site and append /_vti_bin/ListData.svc. For example, the address for the site intranet.wingtip.com would be http://intranet.wingtip.com/_vti_bin/ListData.svc.
  • Change the default name in the Namespace box from ServiceReference1 to something more appropriate, such as WingtipSite.
  • Click OK to create proxy classes, including a data context and entity classes for the lists that you want to access.
  • Begin writing code against these proxy classes, which provide strongly typed access to the columns of SharePoint list items.

You can also use SharePoint client-side object model (CSOM) by referencing Microsoft.SharePoint.Client.dll to your solution.

To get a SharePoint list using javascript:

var siteUrl = '/sites/MySiteCollection'; <-- URL of the web containing the list you are interested in
var listName = 'Documents'; <-- Name of the list you are interested in
var clientContext = new SP.ClientContext(siteUrl);
var oList = clientContext.get_web().get_lists().getByTitle(listName);

By now you have the SharePoint-list. If you are interested in the list items, you can get them using a caml-query to select the items you want.

var camlQuery = new SP.CamlQuery();
camlQuery.set_viewXml('<View><Query><Where><Geq><FieldRef Name=\'ID\'/>' + 
    '<Value Type=\'Number\'>1</Value></Geq></Where></Query><RowLimit>10</RowLimit></View>');
var collListItem = oList.getItems(camlQuery);

  • This will not work from another domain than the SharePoint server – Robert Lindgren Feb 21 '17 at 15:13
  • Good point. Didn't think it through. Still possible though, if not so wise, by adding some headers. :) – RHamsund Feb 21 '17 at 15:43
