Getting “ows_MetaInfo” Nicely with SPServices

I know that I’m going to look for this tip again, so this post is as much as a “note to self” as anything else, though I expect that others will use it, too.

One of the streams I watch with HootSuite is a plain old search for “SPServices”. It’s useful for me to see what people are saying about SPServices (this one and not that one) and I occasionally retweet the good stuff.

I spotted a great tip from Steve Ottenad (@sottenad) yesterday about displaying the MetaInfo from list items nicely. It’s so simple, yet as far as I know, undocumented.!/sottenad/status/86135314728501248

Simply add Properties="True" to your CAMLViewFields, like so:

CAMLViewFields: "<ViewFields Properties='True' />",

Thanks, Steve!
