I have the following lines (using javascript) in my default display form associated with a document library. It works fine, but when I go to add another web part to that display form, it overrides it and the new web part is missing. Thoughts?


Ultimately, I would like to hide the ribbon row AND display more than one web part in the default form.

  • And how are you adding the new webpart? Through designer? Commented Feb 17, 2016 at 16:57
  • No.. I was going through the default display form in SP and just hitting 'Add a Web Part'.

To hide the ribbon from a specific form you can use a content editor webpart.

Put the Javascript in a script block in a .html file and put the address to that file in the source part of the content editor webpart.

Hide the content editor webpart itself using the webpart settings.

You should be able to add more webparts to the same form.

You can reuse the .html file this same way anytime you want to hide the ribbon from a form.
