Hi Marc, nice work!! BTW, are you sure you're not cloned?? Firstly. I apologize if this exact topic has previously been discussed.
This looks real slick and have a question about the applicability of $().SPServices.SPDisplayRelatedInfo similar to working item
263834 where the individual was displaying related documents.
I want to do precisely that: I have a contacts list and want to display all documents from a specific document library related to that user. Essentially a parent-child relationship.
As I understand from your description, you must employ a lookup list for this to work? If so, perhaps a little SharePoint trickery where a lookup field could be used in the contacts list to lookup on itself but use some jQuery to assign the current contactID?
In the document list I would also employ your jquery solution to provide an "Add New User" with the Contact lookup field.
How stuff like that was never included OOTB is beyond me, but I digress.
Bottom line, I just wanted to hear it from the proverbial horse's mouth and seek your opinion on the applicability of $().SPServices.SPDisplayRelatedInfo with
maybe 25 documents per person versus the other technique of using SharePoint Designer to create the parent-child relationship as per
Mark Rackley's blog on this subject. You know, the list with in a list form.
Thanks for your time and effort!
