I am writing a code which tests the due date of my task and then the value of my column "emailcheck". This last one is a Yes/No column, by Default set on No, I will need it in to know if I sent or not an email reminder.

However, I am not able to Change the value of this column. I tried several solution, but all failed.

"HERE" in my code is the place where I succeed all the condition and I want to Change the of "emailcheck"

<script type="text/javascript">
function colorCodeRows() {

        OnPostRender: function (ctx) {

            // get today's date
            var today = new Date();

            //In two weeks date
            var twoWeeks = new Date();

            var rows = ctx.ListData.Row;
            for (var i = 0; i < rows.length; i++) {
                //itemStatus = rows[i][Vorgangsstatus[0].lookupValue];

                // get the date set in my date field
                var itemDate = new Date(rows[i]['Zieltermin']);
                // zero out the time portion so we only compare days

                var rowId = GenerateIIDForListItem(ctx, rows[i]);
                var row = document.getElementById(rowId);

                itemEmailCheck = rows[i]["emailcheck"];

                if (itemDate > today && itemDate < twoWeeks) //&& itemStatus != "Completed")
                    row.style.backgroundColor = '#ED9898';

                    if(itemEmailCheck == "Nein")



I tried this :

function createListitem(){
    var clientContext = new SP.ClientContext(_spPafeContextInfo.siteAbsoluteUrl);
    var oList = clientContext.get_web().get_lists().getByTitle('Auftragsordner');
    var itemCreateInfo = new SP.ListItemCreationInformation();
    this.oListItem = oList.addItem(itemCreateInfo);
    oListItem.set_item('emailcheck', 'Ja');

I would like a solution to modify this field. Thank you in advance.


To set a choice field value, you need to set it as 1 or 0.

Like - oListItem.set_item('emailcheck', 1);

Also, once "updated", you need to execute it using executeQueryAsync to actually send data to the server and add a list item.

Modify your code as below:

function createListitem(){
    var clientContext = new SP.ClientContext(_spPageContextInfo.siteAbsoluteUrl);
    var oList = clientContext.get_web().get_lists().getByTitle('Auftragsordner');
    var itemCreateInfo = new SP.ListItemCreationInformation();
    var oListItem = oList.getItemById(rows[i]['ID']);
    oListItem.set_item('emailcheck', 1);
            console.log("Added list item");
     },function(sender, args){
        console.log('Request failed. \nError: ' + args.get_message() + '\nStackTrace: ' + args.get_stackTrace());
  • Thank you for your reply. However I follow your advise but it doesn't work. I am very new in SharePoint and js, but maybe it should be because there is no concrete ID. But i dont know how retrieve the id of the current row – fullcarton Jun 1 '18 at 12:48
