Let's add some piece of code to create a list

Scripts 

  1. <script src="_layouts/15/sp.runtime.js" type="text/javascript"></script>  
  2. <script src="_layouts/15/sp.js" type="text/javascript"></script>  
  3. <script src=" /SiteAssets/JS/CRUD list.js" type="text/javas   

HTML 

  1. <div id="form">  
  2.     <table>  
  3.         <tr>  
  4.             <td>  
  5.                 <p>Enter List Name</p>  
  6.             </td>  
  7.             <td> <input type="text" id="txtlistname" /> </td>  
  8.         </tr>  
  9.         <tr>  
  10.             <td> <input type="button" id="btncreate" value="submit" /> </td>  
  11.         </tr>  
  12.     </table>  
  13. </div>  
  14. <div id="results"></div>   

CreateList.js

Create a function named btncreate.

Note 

Using this function, I will get the value of the list name from HTML input box on button click event.

Now, pass the list value into another function CreateList.

Code 

  1. function btncreate()  
  2. {  
  3.     $('#btncreate').on("click"function() {  
  4.         var listValue = $('#txtlistname').val();  
  5.         CreateList(listValue);  
  6.     });  
  7. }   

Code 

  1. function CreateList(listValue)  
  2. {  
  3.     var context = new SP.ClientContext() // Get the site collection from the context  
  4.     var web = context.get_web(); // Get all the list properties  
  5.     var listcreation = new SP.ListCreationInformation(); // Used for create a list  
  6.     listcreation.set_title(listValue); // get the title of the list  
  7.     listcreation.set_templateType(SP.ListTemplateType.genericList) // Provide the template for list ex:announcement, task in this scenario used genericlistproperty  
  8.     this.list = web.get_lists().add(listcreation); // Create a list using web property  
  9.     context.load(list); // load the values into the site context  
  10.     context.executeQueryAsync(Function.createDelegate(thisthis.onsuccess), Function.createDelegate(thisthis.onfailed));  
  11. }  
  12.   
  13. function onsuccess() {  
  14.     var results = list.get_title() + 'Create success'// if success message will be rendered into html element  
  15.     $('#results').html(results);  
  16. }  
  17.   
  18. function onfailed(sender, args) {  
  19.     alert('Creation Failed' + args.get_message() + '\n' + args.get_stackTrace()); // If failed shows error message  
  20. }   

Full code 

  1. $(function() {  
  2.     btncreate();  
  3. });  
  4.   
  5. function btncreate() {  
  6.     $('#btncreate').on("click"function() {  
  7.         var listValue = $('#txtlistname').val();  
  8.         CreateList(listValue);  
  9.     });  
  10. }  
  11.   
  12. function CreateList(listValue) {  
  13.     var context = new SP.ClientContext()  
  14.     var web = context.get_web();  
  15.     var listcreation = new SP.ListCreationInformation();  
  16.     listcreation.set_title(listValue);  
  17.     listcreation.set_templateType(SP.ListTemplateType.genericList)  
  18.     this.list = web.get_lists().add(listcreation);  
  19.     context.load(list);  
  20.     context.executeQueryAsync(Function.createDelegate(thisthis.onsuccess), Function.createDelegate(thisthis.onfailed));  
  21. }  
  22.   
  23. function onsuccess() {  
  24.     var results = list.get_title() + 'Create success';  
  25.     $('#results').html(results);  
  26. }  
  27.   
  28. function onfailed(sender, args) {  
  29.     alert('Creation Failed' + args.get_message() + '\n' + args.get_stackTrace());  
  30. }
