SPServices: Using jQuery to auto fill current user information in SharePoint 2010

Using a following script in your page by SharePoint Designer or Content Editor WP

<script language="javascript" src="/TimeSheet/jQuery%20Libraries/jquery-1.4.2.min.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
<script language="javascript" src="/TimeSheet/jQuery%20Libraries/jquery.SPServices-0.5.4.min.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
<script language="javascript" type="text/javascript">
$(document).ready(function() {
var userDepartment = $().SPServices.SPGetCurrentUser({
fieldName: "Department"

In this script, we auto-fill the Department textbox by the department of the current user.
