I need to do some customization with my new item form in Document Library, I have a document library, when i click on new item the new item form opens in a modal dialog i need to prevent this from happening as i want it to open in in a new tab or in the same page but not as modal dialog but i want to display on the page completely. Thank you

I used this Javascript to redirect:

<script language="javascript" src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.6.4/jquery.min.js" type="text/javascript"> </script> 
<script language="javascript" type="text/javascript">  
    function PageOnLoad() {    
        document.getElementById('idHomePageNewDocument-WPQ2').onclick= function() { document.location="http://sp2013/sites/sitecollection/doclibrary/Upload.aspx"; };
