Need help getting User's domain\login from their full name

Dec 6, 2012 at 9:44 PM

I need to obtain a user's login name. I have their full name from a simple jquery on a list display page.

The end goal is to create a new list item in another list with a "Person" populated in a "Person or Group" field. I have everything working to create the new list item except the person fields.

I have tried to use "GetUserProfileByName" but that seems to be for going the other way. Any assistance would be appreciated.

When you say that you've got "their full name from a simple jquery on a list display page", you may be able to get their account name from the same page as well. The account is usually also there when a user link is displayed.
