Limiting GetList Response

Oct 8, 2012 at 9:14 PM

I'm wondering if there's a way to limit the result of the GetList call.  I'm trying to make a dynamic link to a list's RSS feed and the call to GetList to fetch just the GUID seems very expensive and returns a lot of unneeded data about the list.

$().SPServices.SPListNameFromUrl won't work in this instance as I'm not working within the context of a form.

Since I needed to do it for 2 lists, I opted to use GetListCollection and parsed out what I needed, but is still seems pretty heavy handed.

The Web Services return what they return, so there's no shortcut there. What you're doing is something I'd probably use a DVWP for.

I didn't think so but thought I'd ask.
