I'm using Sharepoint Online, and in the advanced list settings I have "Launch forms in a dialog?" option set to no. However in the (Modern) list view it continues to open item details and editing in the slide out modal.

How/Can I force item details to redirect to a page instead of opening a model in the modern list view?

It is by design.

Currently, the "Launch forms in a dialog?" only controls the classic list.

For the modern list, it is designed to edit item details in the information panel without leaving the list. when we new/edit an item, it will show a panel that slides out on the right.

Information about modern list.

  • So is it possible to override this feature with JavaScript?

  • Currently, we cannot use JavaScript in a modern list view. You may need to use SPFx. Refer to docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sharepoint/dev/solution-guidance/… Commented Aug 2, 2018 at 2:35
  • @JoannaW_MSFT Hi! I have a side question about this. How about when using a modern list (preview) web part. I added the web part on a communication site and it shows the list like it should but when I try to click the list items or add new ones, it takes me to a new page instead of using the side panel. So is it possible to use the side panel with the modern list (preview) web part also? :)

  • Two years later and it is still not possible to use the side panel in webparts. Very disappointing!
