In SP-2013 on prem, I am trying to hide all elements except the one element where one can browse for pictures, like shown in this picture where I want to hide everything inside the red square.

enter image description here

I wish to hide the elements with css, but it is not working. This is what I wrote in my css, and it is not working for me. Please advice.

#ctl00_PlaceHolderDialogBodySection_PlaceHolderDialogBodyMainSection_ctl13_tablerow1, #ctl00_PlaceHolderDialogBodySection_PlaceHolderDialogBodyMainSection_ctl13_tablerow2,
#ctl00_PlaceHolderDialogBodySection_PlaceHolderDialogBodyMainSection_ctl13_tablerow3, #ctl00_PlaceHolderDialogBodySection_PlaceHolderDialogBodyMainSection_ctl13_tablerow5, 
#ctl00_PlaceHolderDialogBodySection_PlaceHolderDialogBodyMainSection_ctl02_tablerow1, #ctl00_PlaceHolderDialogBodySection_PlaceHolderDialogBodyMainSection_ctl02_tablerow2, 
#ctl00_PlaceHolderDialogBodySection_PlaceHolderDialogBodyMainSection_ctl02_tablerow3, #ctl00_PlaceHolderDialogBodySection_PlaceHolderDialogBodyMainSection_ctl02_tablerow5,
#ctl00_PlaceHolderDialogBodySection_PlaceHolderDialogBodyMainSection_ctl14_tablerow1, #ctl00_PlaceHolderDialogBodySection_PlaceHolderDialogBodyMainSection_ctl14_tablerow2, 
#ctl00_PlaceHolderDialogBodySection_PlaceHolderDialogBodyMainSection_ctl14_tablerow3, #ctl00_PlaceHolderDialogBodySection_PlaceHolderDialogBodyMainSection_ctl14_tablerow5

table.ms-authoringcontrols:first-child tr:nth-of-type(n+5){
  • You need to try IE DOM (developer tools - F12) to identify proper IDs or classes for your controls & hide them. – Hardik May 25 '16 at 20:18
  • These ID's are found by using developer tools. – Ilyas May 25 '16 at 20:19
  • are you able to hide controls by DOM? – Hardik May 25 '16 at 20:20
  • If i write display:none on .element style in developer tools, yes. But not when it is applied in the css (the css code that can be seen in the opening post) – Ilyas May 25 '16 at 20:21

Please try below CSS code.

.ms-dialog #ctl00_PlaceHolderDialogBodySection_PlaceHolderDialogBodyMainSection_ctl13_tablerow1, .ms-dialog #ctl00_PlaceHolderDialogBodySection_PlaceHolderDialogBodyMainSection_ctl13_tablerow2,
.ms-dialog #ctl00_PlaceHolderDialogBodySection_PlaceHolderDialogBodyMainSection_ctl13_tablerow3, .ms-dialog #ctl00_PlaceHolderDialogBodySection_PlaceHolderDialogBodyMainSection_ctl13_tablerow5, 
.ms-dialog #ctl00_PlaceHolderDialogBodySection_PlaceHolderDialogBodyMainSection_ctl02_tablerow1, .ms-dialog #ctl00_PlaceHolderDialogBodySection_PlaceHolderDialogBodyMainSection_ctl02_tablerow2, 
.ms-dialog #ctl00_PlaceHolderDialogBodySection_PlaceHolderDialogBodyMainSection_ctl02_tablerow3, .ms-dialog #ctl00_PlaceHolderDialogBodySection_PlaceHolderDialogBodyMainSection_ctl02_tablerow5,
.ms-dialog #ctl00_PlaceHolderDialogBodySection_PlaceHolderDialogBodyMainSection_ctl14_tablerow1, .ms-dialog #ctl00_PlaceHolderDialogBodySection_PlaceHolderDialogBodyMainSection_ctl14_tablerow2, 
.ms-dialog #ctl00_PlaceHolderDialogBodySection_PlaceHolderDialogBodyMainSection_ctl14_tablerow3, .ms-dialog #ctl00_PlaceHolderDialogBodySection_PlaceHolderDialogBodyMainSection_ctl14_tablerow5

.ms-dialog table.ms-authoringcontrols:first-child tr:nth-of-type(n+5){

I have added .ms-dialog in your CSS which will find the IDs in dialog box.

  • Hi Hardik, and thanks for your reply. I have tried that also, but to no success. Have you tried it in your environment, and did it work for you ? – Ilyas May 25 '16 at 20:28

    Have you inserted that code in your parent page? – Hardik May 25 '16 at 20:30
