How would I display the result of a CAML query via javascript on a SharePoint page? I'm trying to use this result in inline HTML similar to this:

<h5> Current OnCall: [CAML Result]</h5>

    What exactly do you mean by the result of a CAML query via javascript. Are you trying to fetch data from SharePoint list and you want to show that on SharePoint page ? can you elaborate it more.... – Rohit Waghela Jun 14 '17 at 18:33
  • i have a CAML query that pulls the current on call person from a list. I need to display this persons name on a SharePoint page. I was thinking the best way may be to use JS and a variable, but i was having a tough time getting it to work so I thought I would throw out the question for assistance. – Josh Henderson Jun 15 '17 at 12:05

You may put the entire CAML Query result in a variable, then you can add it to the DOM as such:


<h5 id="camltext"></h5>


var camlResult = JSON.stringify(data.d.results); //find CAMLResults from JSOM
var textnode = document.createTextNode(camlResult );
