Update SharePoint List item using UpdateListItem web service with javascript

Posted By:      Posted Date: August 29, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
I'm using the Custom_AddListMenuItems function in a CEWP to add a menu item to each list item to Archive that item. This is achieved by updating a choice field in the item to 'Archived'. I'm trying to do this using the web service UpdateListItem web service to update the item using Javascript, but I can not find the correct code that updates the list item. I'm using this code:     var ctx=currentCtx;     var ciid=currentItemID;     var xmlHttp=null;     if (confirm("Are you sure you want to Archive this item?"))     {         var soapRequest = '<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>'+             '<soap:Envelope xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xmlns:xsd="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema" xmlns:soap="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/envelope/">'+             '    <soap:Body>'+             '        <UpdateListItems xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/sharepoint/soap/">'+

how to update sharepoint list item instead of creating a new one


hi guys,

i was working on a webform on asp.net, it has a list to save users information. the system has a "profile manager", it has user's loggin name. so i made a query to check if it already exists in the list, and then prepopulated the information on the form(in page load).

what i want is that if this item already exists, it can update the item. if it is not in the list, it will then create a new one.

i was searching around, and changed my code accordingly. but it always create a new item, even though all information is the same.

here is my pageload code:

public class TTCVIP : System.Web.UI.UserControl


  protected GenericWebPart webpart;

  StringBuilder _exceptionMsg;

  bool _hasException;

  #region member controls



  //rendering the page

  private void Page_Load(object sender, System.EventArgs e)



   SPSite mySite = SPControl.GetContextSite(Context);

   SPWeb myWeb = SPControl.GetContextWeb(Context);

   ServerContext context = ServerContext.GetContext(mySite);

   UserProfileManager myProfileManager = new UserProfileManager(context);

   string CurrentUser = Context.User.Identity.Name;

   UserProfile myProfile = myProfileManager.GetUserProfile(CurrentUser);         


   //check if list exist and create new list 



    if (!IsPostBack)



Update a Sharepoint List in SSIS (Web Service)?


Good day,

I'm trying to update a Sharepoint List withh SSIS (Web Service)?
I tried using Web Services with vbscript/javascript but struggled for days.

I'm working on a Remote sever diff to the Sharepoint & SQL server (3 diff serv)

But thought if i could get a package to update the list (Sharepoint document library) and then execute the package using vbscipt/javascript through a command prompt.

Firstly i would like to get the package to work before i try & execute the package remotely.

Where can i also find the ssis sharepoint list adapters installer package to install.

SSRS 2008 R2 - Sharepoint list item hyperlink bug?

I have created a report based on a sharepoint list and I am using a subscription in WSS 3.0 to email the report to the users once a week. I want one column in the report to act as a hyperlink to the sharepoint list item but in the email version of the report, the URL has the list item ID repeated twice, which renders the link invalid. Initially, I tried using the 'Encoded Absolute URL' from the sharepoint list query to populate the hyperlink but this just gives a 404 NOT FOUND error and I have found documented in several places on the web that this link only works with document libraries. So instead, I decided to create the URL for the action using an expression, like this: ="http://myserver/mysite/Lists/mylist/DispForm.aspx?ID=" & ListItemID.Value This works perfectly in the development environment and when people run the report for themselves in the sharepoint document library where it is deployed but, for some reason, if I send the report on a schedule then I get the ID parameter repeated at the end twice. Like this: http://myserver/mysite/Lists/mylist/DispForm.aspx?ID=999&ID=999 I have tried rendering the report in several different formats (Word, PDF, MHTML, HTML) and they all seem to work fine in the development and when run within SharePoint but not when they are rendered and emailed using the scheduler. Is this a bug or am I missing so

Error creating Read Item or Read List operation in Sharepoint Designer 2010

In terms of high-level requirements, I need to pull in lists from a couple of different web apps.  To do this, I’m using SPD 2010 to create an External Content Type for the list of interest.  I’m able to create a SOAP Service or WCF Service connection just fine.  However, when I try to create the external content type and create a Read Item Operation on one of the GetList or any other Get* (or other Update methods for that matter) methods, I get the following error:"The method that your operation is based on has parameters with complex types that do not have default parameterless constructor.  This kind of data source methods cannot be used in Business Data Catalog."I tried defining an operation on the “AddAttachment” method, and that worked just fine.  I also tried providing default values to the listName and viewName parameters when creating the SOAP Service connection, but still get the error.  Same issue with a WCF Service connection as well. Does anyone know if this is a 2010 issue, or am I approaching this requirement incorrectly?  What are other approaches for connecting to lists that reside in a different web app than yours? 

How to use SharePoint 2007 list data in Reporting Service (Visual Studio) 2008?

Jeez - I have been googling left and right, and tried all the suggestions. No luck in getting it to work. I am using Reporting Service 2008 tools in my VS2008, trying to create a simple report using SharePoint 2007 data (from a simple list). Here is what I've been doing: Created a simple SharePoint list in a test site - only one column (Title) with one record of data. Started Visual Studio 2008 and created a new Report Server Project Wizard project. I named the data source "dsTest". Type: "XML". As connection string I used: http://site/subsite/subsite/_vti_bin/lists.asmx. Credentials: "Use Windows Authentication (Integrated Security)". Clicked Next and arrived at the "Design the Query" form. I entered this in the Query string box: <Query> <Method Namespace="http://schemas.microsoft.com/sharepoint/soap/" Name="GetListItems" /> <SoapAction>http://schemas.microsoft.com/sharepoint/soap/GetListItems</SoapAction> </Query> Clicking Next I get this error: An error occurred while the query design method was being saved. Failed to execute web request for the specified URL. Soap Fault: Exception of type 'Microsoft.SharePoint.SoapServer.SoapServerException' was thrown. Now if I view the Details when trying it inside the Query Builder I get this: <errorstring xmlns="http://schemas.mi

How to update selected item state in the list box by clicking a button?

I created a listbox menu to browse through content by clicking items in the listbox. I also created ‘back’ and ‘forward’ type of navigation to browse through the same content based on the browsing history. I load content into frame and accessing the browsing history with NavigationCommands.BrowseBack and BrowseForward Properties. It is working great. However, I need to indicate a selected state of the listbox item related to the content shown in the frame while browsing with Back/Forward buttons. I have a hard time binding that property. What is the correct way to bind selected state of the listitem in this case? Thank you in advance. XAML: Button <Button x:Name="NavBack" Content="" HorizontalAlignment="Left" Margin="20,0,0,0" Style="{DynamicResource BackButtonStyle}" VerticalAlignment="Top" CommandTarget="{Binding ElementName=ContentFrame}" Command="{x:Static NavigationCommands.BrowseBack}" SnapsToDevicePixels="True" IsEnabled="{Binding CanGoBack, ElementName=ContentFrame, Mode=OneWay}" > XAML: Listsbox <ListBox x:Name="Nav_ListBox" Margin="0,18,0,0" ScrollViewer.HorizontalScrollBarVisibility="Hidden" Background="#FFF2F2F2" ItemsSource="

How to prevent automatic update from sharepoint list on Infopath 2007 form

Hi there, I've got an Infopath 2007 form on MOSS 2007. I have a custom list in sharepoint and the infopath form has a data connection to that list to receive data. Is there any way to prevent automatic update on the values in the form that is received from the list. I'd like the new form to have updated info received from the list. However, the old/existing forms that were created should have the data that were available at the time when the form was created. Let me know if this is not clear and I'll try to explain more. Thanks,Pman http://www.pmansLab.com/

Emailing Calendar Item to SharePoint List

I have followed the various instructions around the net (specifically the TechNet article) on configuring MOSS2007 and Exchange for mail enabling your lists. I have also read and applied the changes specified by the Microsoft KB regarding the two forgotten Active Directory entries. At this point I am able to send an email to a list and have the email post. Some of my users want to make use of the Email enabled Calendar List. They create a standard Calendar list and mail enable it. They give the list a unique name for Active Directory. They then goto Outlook and try "inviting an attendee" to an event and wait to see the event get posted on the SharePoint list. I have applied the KB edits to the new Active Directory user and I can watch the emails come into the dropbox and then disappear, but nothing ever happens. I have permissions setup correctly as well as far as giving "Authenticated Users" contribute access.... I don't see any errors specifically.... I do notice all my emails come in as .eml attachments... Any ideas of where to look?
