but using the same code the icon don't appear

enter image description here

here the code that I'm using:

<script src="/Documents/jQuery/jquery-1.8.2.min.js"type="text/javascript"></script>
  <script src="/Documents/jQuery/jquery.SPServices-0.7.2.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
   <style type="text/css" media="print">
   @page  {size: auto; }</style>
  <script language="javascript" type="text/javascript">


 $('​<img width="77" height="79" id="PrimeiraAdenda" title="Print" alt="Print.png" Location="CommandUI.Ribbon.DisplayForm" src="link to image"  style=" cursor:hand; margin: 5px; width: 52px; height: 52px;"/>').insertAfter   ($('[role=tabpanel] li').last());



</script>​ ​​​​​​​​​​​
  • Do you wish to add a submit button on your custom InfoPath form? Commented Sep 30, 2016 at 10:25
  • No, the rest of the code I hide. that button (The printer), uses SPServices to generate a pdf template from the selected item Commented Sep 30, 2016 at 10:27

No need for code, just use SharePoint Designer to add a Custom Action:

  • connect to the site using SharePoint Designer
  • go to 'Lists and Libraries' and open the list by clicking on the name
  • go to 'Custom Action' in the ribbon and choose 'View Ribbon'
  • type a name
  • choose 'Navigate to URL' and fill in the correct URL to the page (use {selecteditemid} in the query string for the id of the selected item
  • specify the images
  • I can´t use SharePoint designer :( Commented Sep 30, 2016 at 10:43
  • you can also use Javascript to add a custom action button to the Ribbon, see the following question on StackOverflow: sharepoint.stackexchange.com/questions/101982/… Commented Sep 30, 2016 at 11:01
  • If you edit the form with infopath you won't be able to add custom actions... I have just lost three buttons. :((
