SPFindPeoplePicker's checkNames not allowing for "false"... what am I missing??

May 20, 2013 at 5:26 PM

I am using Sharepoint 2010, SPServices 0.7.2and , JQuery 1.8.3. when I use the $().SPFindPeoplePicker function, the value in the field is checked even if I set the checkNames to false. Am I missing something or am I not understanding the property meaning. Any thoughs?

Thanks - Peter

Well, I think the issue is not that the checkNames=false is not working but rather that Sharepoint is the one failing the validation for the value in the field AFTER (not during) my call to SPFindPeoplePicker.

All that checkNames does is click the check icon for you. The actual checking happens in communication with the server the same way it always does. If the value isn't valid, then you'll get an error normally. Does that help?

Thanks for the reply. Yeah, I realized later that it didn't really matter if I used True or False, the check was going to be done one way or another at some point. AQll is good now. Thanks!!
