How to get alert of look up value RRS feed

  • Question

  • I want to see alert message with selected value  which  i select from column(which is look up from another list column)

    I tried java script but its not working ..

    Please let me know a correct script.

    instead of script if i write a event handler in which when i will select a  value from column then  it should get value in message box and then proceed means in code i need to fetch column value and message for on select event

    Please guide if someone has done this-

  • Hi, just add the content query webpart above the listviewWebpart and in CQWP under source just add the below script and check it,

    <script srchttp://ajax.microsoft.com/ajax/jquery/jquery-1.4.4.min.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
    <script type="text/javascript">
        $(document).ready(function () {
            var i = 1;
            $(".ms-listviewtable").find(".ms-vb2").find("a").click(function () {
    //To stop redirecting to list just return false
     return false;

  • What is wrong in this-

    in designer on newfrom.aspx i am writing-


    <script language="javascript" type="text/javascript">

    function PreSaveAction()
        var a= getTagFromIdentifierAndTitle("Select","Lookup","RSOR Number");

           if (a.value)
              return false;

         return true;  // OK to proceed with the save item

    function getTagFromIdentifierAndTitle(tagName, identifier, title)
       var len = identifier.length;
       var tags = document.getElementsByTagName(tagName);
       for (var i=0; i < tags.length; i++)
          var tempString = tags[i].id;
          if (tags[i].title == title && (identifier == "" || tempString.indexOf(identifier) == tempString.length - len))
             return tags[i];
       return null;


    ?Please let me know

  • I do believe you meant to say add the Content Editor web part, not Content Query. Also, when answering questions I think we all need to keep in mind that the Content Query Web part is only available in publishing site collections, and not everyone has publishing turned on everywhere.
