jQuery SPServices get list guid

1 Sep

A very easy way to retrieve the guid of a list with SPServices: 

<script type="text/javascript" src="../ICTLibrary/jquery-1.3.2.min.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="../ICTLibrary/jquery.SPServices-0.5.4.min.js"></script> 

<script type="text/javascript">
$("document").ready(function() { 

function GetListId(listName) {
var id = "";
operation: "GetList",
listName: listName,
async: false,
completefunc: function (xData, Status) {
id = $(xData.responseXML).find("List").attr("ID");
return id;

var listid = GetListId("Plastic");
$("#listid").append("list not found");

<div id="listid" >Plastic list guid: </div>
