i reviewed the library seettings with Sharepoint Manager and the only differences i could find were :
DefaultItemOpen - Prefer Client (production library, not working), browser(in test environment where its working)
Versioning -On (production library, not working), On in test environment.
I don't think any of these are the real issue because i have it working in orther libraries in production that have these settings on...
var oListItem = listItemEnumerator.get_current();
var oFile = oListItem.get_file();
var path = oFile.get_serverRelativeUrl();
var fullitemurl = window.location.protocol +
'//' + window.location.host + path;
i need to test this with https. I tried passing just the path to my web service call (from the code above) but it didn't seem to work unless i passed the fullitemurl above.
