I have two Web parts that I connected to each other to pass some filter variables. It achieved the goal I was hoping for, but when the connection was added a double arrow was placed by SharePoint in the top left hand corner. Is it possible to remove this image?

I tried just deleting through designer like I did for column headers, but that didn't work.

Messing around, I see no real point in the arrow other than indicate that it is connected to another web part and would really like to remove it.


Using the arrow you can select the row and pass it to the connected webpart. If you want to hide the images, then you can use following jQuery code

  • thanks for the response Amal, you seem to be answering alot of my questions. Unfortunately I went to put your script in via designer, and when I saved the changes Designer stopped responding, I brought Designer back up and removed the edits I made...but when I saved that I could not open the page and the code in sharepoint has massive blocks of (seemingly gibberish) blue code. this section of this blue code is included in the <webpartsPages:WebPartZone tag – Jeffrey Quinn Jan 23 '15 at 21:37
  • I thought I did as I had used it in the past, I will definitely look into use the Content Editor Web Part. However, for now I am just going to worry about salvaging/fixing the page so it dosent error out when trying to open – Jeffrey Quinn Jan 23 '15 at 21:52
  • I managed to salvage the page! Also, I did what you recommended and made a copy of the page and have been working with that. I went back and made sure I had jquery installed, I also put in a CEWP linked to a .txt with your script. Unfortunately it did not work, I pulled up dev tools and changed the background color with script so I know Jquery is loading but when I run your script through the consol i get a "Expected ')' error. I am not very savy with jscript (yet) so I am not sure as to the issue. – Jeffrey Quinn Jan 27 '15 at 22:00
  • I was looking into it alittle more and notice there was an open parenthesis that missing its closing parenthesis, I added that in and now states that its looking for an open { – Jeffrey Quinn Jan 27 '15 at 22:05
  • If you are testing in dev tools then you can try this $("img[src='/_layouts/images/rbsel.gif']").hide();$("img[src='/_layouts/images/rbunsel.gif']").hide(); – Amal Hashim Jan 27 '15 at 22:06
