I have a list field named PersoniKonfirmues and I want this field to be set to the current user that is logged in. I want to do this with client side using javascript in Sharepoint 2013

enter image description here

Please help me.


Add the below code in Script Editor WebPart in your NewForm

<script src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.9.1/jquery.min.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript">

$(document).ready(function () {
    // Wait until SP.JS has loaded before calling getWebUserData 
    ExecuteOrDelayUntilScriptLoaded(SetCurrentUsernameToPeoplePicker, "sp.js");

function SetCurrentUsernameToPeoplePicker()
var ctx = new SP.ClientContext.get_current();
this.website = ctx.get_web();
this.currentUser = website.get_currentUser();
ctx.executeQueryAsync(Function.createDelegate(this, this.onSucceess), 
Function.createDelegate(this, this.onFail));

function onSucceess(sender, args)
var loginName = currentUser.get_loginName();
var form = $("table[class='ms-formtable']"); 
var userField = form.find("input[id$='ClientPeoplePicker_EditorInput']").get(1);
var peoplepicker = SPClientPeoplePicker.PickerObjectFromSubElement(userField);

function onFail(sender, args)
alert('request failed ' + args.get_message() + '\n'+ args.get_stackTrace());

[Output] (Tested on My Side)

Note: In case you want to set People Field (not People1), just set get(1) to get(0) if you have multiple People and Picker field just set #OrderIDin get(#OrderID) based on the order ID of your desired People and Picker field on your form

  • making this line of code to the following works perfect var userField = form.find("div[id$='PersoniKonfirmues']").get(0); – Nderon Hyseni Dec 3 '17 at 8:50
