How can I replaced SharePoint 2013 survey question text with image? I cant get the ms-formlabel class in my javascrip.

Below is the script I am Using:

<script language="JavaScript">

var className;
className = 'ms-formlabel';ms-formlabel

var elements = new Array();
var elements = document.getElementsByTagName('td');
for (var e = 0; e < elements.length; e++)
    if (elements[e].className == className)
        elements[e].innerHTML = elements[e].innerHTML.replace('jj','<img src="/PublishingImages/icon-document.png"></img>');


There is a workaround for you. I have created a survey list which has questions as below format


  • Enter Choice #1
  • Enter Choice #2
  • Enter Choice #3


  • Enter Choice #1
  • Enter Choice #2
  • Enter Choice #3

I used the text of the question as the token to find the right placeholder for the image and appended the image there using the below script.

function SetImage(){
var image1="<img src='/PublishingImages/icon-document.png'></img>"
var image1Question = $("table.ms-formtable .ms-formlabel:contains('jjj')");

$(document).ready( function () {

It works fine for me. Cheers.

  • Is it working in Sharepoint 2013 too? Because I cant get the class i.e. ms-formlabel.

  • The code i have shared is also tested in SP2013. Can you share the html format of the table where you are trying to find the class. Jun 7 '16 at 6:28
  • <table class="ms-formtable" width="100%" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0" border="0" style="margin-top: 8px;"> <tbody> <tr> <td class="ms-formlabel" width="90%" valign="top"> jjj </td> </tr> <tr> <td class="ms-formbody" width="90%" valign="top"> <span dir="none"> </span> </td> </tr> </tbody> </table>
