Returning GetListItems as true/false

Feb 18, 2014 at 3:43 PM
Hello again :)

I am working on a SP2010 Enterprise project for a Publishing Site Collection where I need to unbind click from links that display project information visitors don't have permission to access. All the projects are list items in a project list and there is a lookup field for it on the Team Members list. I am using the query string of the href to filter the Team Members list to verify they are associated with the project and want to return a true or false and unbind the link accordingly.

I am getting everything to work and am returning data correctly, except when I get to the SPFilterNode and I am unable to format the completefunc to return true or false/ length?
Here are my references (I just moved up to using.SPServices-0.7.2, so I may have messed something up this way as well?) :

SPFilterNode will just return all of the z:row elements from the returned XML. Do you want to just check how many items have been returned? If so, you can do:
var numItems = $(xData.responseXML).SPFilterNode("rs:data").attr("ItemCount");

I had tried that as well after seeing the post about counting, but I apparently did something wrong when I tried to set it up. I'll give it another whack. Thanks for confirming I was barking up the right tree with that approach at least :)
