I am already using custom field iterators to customize the fields on my list forms. When users are creating or editing a list item, I want certain field names to show in bold.

For example, when users are creating a new Task item, I want the fields Assigned To and Description to be in bold.

How can I achieve this and I am not interested in using InfoPath for the forms.

You can use jQuery to find the fields and apply css to them with something like:

$("h3[class^='ms-standardheader']:contains('Assigned To')").css("font-weight", "Bold");
$("h3[class^='ms-standardheader']:contains('Description')").css("font-weight", "Bold");
  • You're welcome. If it's a custom form you created in SharePoint Designer, you can always apply styling directly in code/design/split view as well. Apr 27, 2011 at 16:31
