I have created two edit forms editform1 and editform2 and now I want to open editform1 for the site owner user (Role) and want to open editform2 for site members (Role) let me know How can I do it?

In SPD you can restrict a form to a user-role and add a link for it to the ribbon. In this way the Site Owner would have to specifically click that link but it would not be available for other users.

But i want to open editform on list item click based on roles. – RHM May 20 '13 at 21:56
Yep I understand. This suggestion was a quick compromise. I think you would have to resort to a code solution and intercept the click event. You could achieve another workaround with XSLT and run a function ONCLICK but that would only be for the specific view and not take into account the ribbon links. – Dave Paylor May 21 '13 at 8:49
