So I'm trying to get TeamCalendar information out of Sharepoint in a single call, but I can't get the Attendees out. This is my code:

    url: "/sites/ecengprodsoft/mt/_vti_bin/listdata.svc/TeamCalendar(32)",
    dataType: 'json',
    async: true,
    success: function(data) {

Which gives me all the information about an event apart from Attendees, Category, CreatedBy and ModifiedBywhich show as [object Object] but have no useful sub-information inside apart from the URI call to get the right data.

So for example, if I call /sites/ecengprodsoft/mt/_vti_bin/listdata.svc/TeamCalendar(32)/Attendees I get the information I want, but I don't want to have to perform a separate call for each item in the TeamCalendar.

Is there a way to get all the information, including attendees from the TeamCalendar with one call? Perhaps there's some parameters that I can add?

Note that using SOAP this is possible in one call, it grabs all the information.

  • did you try to add the some params more? Take a look on this link odata.org/documentation/odata-version-2-0/uri-conventions Apr 1 '14 at 14:02
  • That's nice, but I still can't see where it explains how to get full sub-objects in one call. Edit: Scratch that, $expand is what I was looking for, thanks!
