 Watch the Recording: Learning MySQL 5.7

MySQL 5.7 has a lot of new features. If you've dabbled with an older version of MySQL, it is definitely worth learning.

//--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
// Convert People Picker String to JSON Array
//--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
function UserInfoFromPP(ppID) {
	var sObj = $(ppID).val();
	var jObj = null;
	if (sObj.length>0)
	{
		jObj = JSON.parse(sObj);
	}	
	return (jObj);
}


//--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
//  You need to construct a string of the form '{"results":["id1", "id2"]}'
//--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
function BuildPeepsString() {
	var jObj = UserInfoFromPP('#peoplePickerDiv_TopSpan_HiddenInput');
	var acc = '{"results":[';
	var ptr = 0;
	var id = "";
	if (jObj) {
		var len = jObj.length;
		for (ptr=0; ptr<len-1; ptr++) {
			id = GetUserProfileAttribute(jObj[ptr].Key, 'ID');
			acc = acc + '"' + id + '"' + ",";						
		}		
		id = GetUserProfileAttribute(jObj[len-1].Key, 'ID');
		acc = acc + '"' + id + '"' ;						
		acc = acc + ']}';
	}

	return (acc);
}


//--------------------------------------------------------------
function HelpAddPostWithParameters(pp, title, body) {
	//var peeps = '{"results":["9", "21"]}';
	var jsonObject = JSON.parse(pp);
	AddPostWithParameters('Posts', title, body, jsonObject);
}

function AddPostWithParameters(plistName, pTitle, pBody, pPeopleObject) {
	var itemProperties = {"Title":pTitle,"Body": pBody, "PublishedDate":new Date().toISOString(), 	
	"PeopleRecognizedId":  pPeopleObject 
	};
	
	//create item
	createListItem(_spPageContextInfo.webAbsoluteUrl,plistName,itemProperties,
	   function(entity){
		  console.log('Post ' + entity.Title + ' has been added');
	   }, 
	   function(error){
		  console.log(JSON.stringify(error));
	   }
	);	
}

//.... on a submit added the following fragment:
               var comments = $('#txtComments').val();
		var peepsString = "";
		peepsString = BuildPeepsString();  
		var demonstratedValue = $('#hiddenDemonstratedValue').val();
		if (peepsString){		
			HelpAddPostWithParameters(peepsString, demonstratedValue, comments);
		}
