AddList to QuickLaunch

Oct 26, 2013 at 5:38 PM
I have a function to create a list but I'm not sure how to get this list to show up on the quick launch.

I found this discussion on this topic but I don't know how to implement it:
function createList(){
    alert("You must first select a site");
  var listName = $('#listName');
  var listDesc = $('#listDesc');
  var listTemp = $('#listTemplate');
  var siteLists = $('#web_siteLists');
  console.log(siteUrl+" - "+listName+" - "+listDesc+" - "+listTemp);
    webURL: siteUrl,
    listName: listName.val(),
    description: listDesc.val(),
    templateID: listTemp.find(':selected').val(),
    OnQuickLaunch: true,
    completefunc: function(xData, Status){
      if($(xData.responseXML).find('faultcode').length > 0){
        alert('Please fill form correctly');
        alert(listName.val()+" created.");

What version if SP?

Also, just to clarify: you want a link on the quick launch area that when Ickes by a user, your function above will run. Is correct?

Version 2010 Foundation.
Not exactly. I have a form to add new lists but the new lists aren't showing up in the quick launch after they are created. I have to go to All site content to find them

I just tested this in my WSS environment and it worked:
  operation: "UpdateList",
  listName: "Sales Opportunities",
  listProperties: "<List OnQuickLaunch='TRUE' />"
Unfortunately, I don't see the OnQuickLaunch property documented on the MSDN page for the operation (, but it's mentioned in a comment.

Thanks for the reply Mark, I guess there's no way to enable this during the creation eh. That seems strange considering you can through SP. Anyways, thanks again.
