SharePoint Online Document Library Information Dynamically – React n Rest Api

I have come out with one requirement which can tell the number files in the document library. Regardless the number of document in the library. I have used React with rest api to get all the folder, and document type count with some ready made components on react. I would like others input to make it more optimize and speedy.

Web part takes document library name from the property name dynamically.


Code is already uploaded on Git Hub.

Resultant screen shot of our solution will be like below.




SP Document Library Information
SP Document Library Information

Step 1.  yo @microsoft/sharePoint
Step 2. Choose SharePoint Online only (latest)
Step 3. Use the current folder
Step 4. Do you want to allow the tenant admin the choice of being able to deploy the solution to all sites immediately without running any feature deployment or adding
apps in sites? (y/N) Choose y
Step 5. Select WebPart
Step 6.What is your Web part name?
Step 7 What is your Web part description?
Step 8. Which framework would you like to use? Chooe React
wait around 3 minutes npm to make necessary files………

Install Jquery and react-countup
i.e. npm install jquery –save Similary
npm install react-countup –save

Go to the component tsx file inside src – > webpart – > yourwebparname.tsx

Go to the interface your webpart calss is inheriting….. and update with below.

import { SPHttpClient } from ‘@microsoft/sp-http’;

export interface IWpDocumentLibInfoProps {
spHttpClient: SPHttpClient;
description: string;

Now come back to tsx file and add the below function one by one.

import CountUp from ‘react-countup’;
import * as jquery from ‘jquery’;

1. Constructor

2. Add below code : It will run during initializing and bring the cound of the document library using rest.
componentDidMount() {

private _GetListTotalCount(): void {
var reactHandler = this;
var NewISiteUrl = this.props.siteurl;
var NewSiteUrl = NewISiteUrl.replace(“SitePages”, “”);
if (this.state.DocumentLibraryName==””){return;}
url: `${NewSiteUrl}/_api/web/Lists/getbytitle(‘${this.state.DocumentLibraryName}’)/ItemCount`,
type: “GET”,
headers: { ‘Accept’: ‘application/json; odata=verbose;’ },
success: function (resultData) {
this.setState({ TotalItem: resultData.d.ItemCount })
var number = parseInt(this.state.TotalItem);
var LoopToQuery = number / 4000;
var LooingItemInt = Math.ceil(LoopToQuery)
this.setState({ LoopForList: LooingItemInt });
error: function (jqXHR, textStatus, errorThrown) {


3.Add this function QueryFilesAndFoldersWrapper # Code is already on the Git Hub

4.QueryITems in Loop because due to 5000 threshold limit we can query rest in chunks of 4999 records.

5. Add the render Method # from git hub.

We can change the Document Library Name from the Property Pane save and refresh.


#Kindly download the code and help me to make it more optimize and more usable for others.

Employee Directory with SPFX ReactJS Using SharePoint Search Rest Api – Modern Webpart

Employee directory is now become a tea spoon in SharePoint. By using Search with Rest Api and react we can easily integrate in our SharePoint Pages.  Another best advantage is we can re-use the react component as well as we can use it on the classic site template.

Screen shots are mentioned below and the Code is on the Git Hub.

This component can fetch the user profile and get the department of login user and query to Search People rest api.





1. Open Powershell and write the command to Create a SharePoint Framework project. yo @microsoft/sharePoint.

SharePoint Framework Custom Form- React JS – SPFX – Complex Forms

In this blog I have create a simplest react project with complex form which can save others time to use in the project. Project is uploaded on Git, it is a SharePoint framework web part with react framework. In this project, a forms with DropDown, Datetime picker, Upload File to SharePoint, Input Fields, HtmlTextEdtir,CheckBoxes  which will submit data to SharePoint List using pnp. Below are components

Need to install below external compoenent.

Have a look

Upload button will upload the file to the SharePoint document Library, I used pnp framework to upload, which allow us to update metadata easily.
