I got a list and a list view. But I want to retrieve only particular list view's data.

How can i do that with javascript ?


There's a lot of advantages to doing this. The trick is to get the caml query off of the list view before querying the list for items.

var ctx = new SP.ClientContext.get_current(),
    list = ctx.get_web().get_lists().getByTitle(<list title>),
    views = list.get_views(),
    view = views.getByTitle(<view name>),

        var camlQuery = new SP.CamlQuery();
        items = list.getItems(camlQuery);
                //items variable will be populated with items from view
            function(sender, args){
                console.error('List items could not be retrieved');

The down side is that there's 2 execute's in order to make this work. one in order to get the data from the list view, the 2nd one to pass in the query pulled from the specific view.

I have a few gists that I use this on for utility sake.
Delete List View Items

Recycle List View Items

Touch List View Items - Used to Trigger on change workflows for all items in a specific view.

You should be able to pull out the general logic or modify for your own extension method on SP.List
