I have created a custom ribbon button for my list. For some pages I wanted to hide the ribbon button and for some pages I wanted to disabled. I found how to make disabled, I wrote following code to make disabled.

 <CommandUIHandler Command="{A9424973-D302-4D7D-98B9-7489B6682780}" CommandAction="~site/SitePages/Test.aspx" 
    function isEnable(){
      if(location.href.indexOf('MyPage/DispForm.aspx') > 0){
        return true;
      return false;

My problem is how to hide ribbon button using CommandUIHandler. Anybody has an idea?

  • Above code is work only for disabling, I need a solution to hide it. – Sivakumar Piratheeban Apr 22 '16 at 9:09

You can try this: add another Custom Action with a Location set to where you want to hide it - for example attach it to list with a specific content type, or to a list based on a custom template (there are many different locations, just Google around):

        <CommandUIDefinition Location="SET_THIS_TO_LOCATION_OF_YOUR_RIBBON_BUTTON" />

For example if you wanted to remove the original New Item button, you would set the Location of CommandUIDefinition to this: Location="Ribbon.ListItem.New.NewListItem"

Exclude the CommandUIHandler node from the XML completely and set Sequence number higher than on your other CustomAction. What will happen in this case - your original button will be added to the Ribbon and then your second CustomAction will overwrite it. Since the CommandUIHandler will be missing - the button will be hidden.


Have you try to use : HideCustomAction ??

With this, you can hide specific custom (the custom and OOTB CustomAction).
