I wish to do Client Side Validation for document library forms. I have tried doing it using jquery for List forms and it is working fine. But when i tried this for Document Library forms, it's not working. Will it not work for document libraries? Any suggestions would be appreciable.

  • Are you adding validation in editform.aspx in document library? – Sabitha S Jul 27 '16 at 9:49

Are you using the "New Experience" Document Library UI?

If so, then it won't accept any branding, or custom script. Microsoft has disabled everything.

The current answer from Microsoft is: Switch back to Classic Mode


  • Thanks for replying Danny. Microsoft isn't letting me to turn on the old classic experience now. Also i am able to apply validations in my share point lists but not libraries specifically. – mohd tahir Jul 27 '16 at 12:08
