I'm writing a polling app for Sharepoint 2013. I created a custom list and need to save the user's vote for each poll.

How do I pass in the Active Directory Name into a label control on the app?

  • AD name? Will the spuser be enough? then you can use the currentuser from web context – Burrhus Feb 16 '14 at 9:55

    You get all you need from the user object. If you don't like to code you can simply use a survey list that does the same as your application. – Stefan Bauer Feb 16 '14 at 13:42
  • @Burrhus Can you elaborate further in an answer? – SidC Feb 16 '14 at 23:33

Something like this.

this.currentContext = new SP.ClientContext.get_current();

this.currentUser = this.currentContext.get_web().get_currentUser();


this.currentContext.executeQueryAsync(Function.createDelegate(this, this.onQuerySucceeded), Function.createDelegate(this, this.onQueryFailed));

onQuerySucceeded = function () {
        var intCount = 1;

The code isn't tested but you get the idea I think.
