This SharePoint tutorial, we will discuss, how to Auto-populate current logged in username in SharePoint 2010 People Picker control. Here we will do by using SPServices js file provided by Codeplex. We will not use any server-side code.
Here my requirement is I have a SharePoint list that has a people picker control in it. I want to show the logged in username or email id there whenever a user tries to add an item to the list. So here we will put the code js code in the Default New Form. For this Open the List -> Customize List -> then Form Web Parts -> then click on Default New Form as shown in the fig below:
This will open the Default New Form in Edit mode. Here you click on Add a Web Part and then add a Content Editor Web Part. Once the web part added, go to format text and then Markup and then Edit Source as shown in the fig below.
You can download the SPService from the CodePlex URL and also you can download the jQuery required version from jquery website and put it in your site assets library.
In the source editor put the below code:
