I have a requirement where Admin will have the ability to turn ON/OFF the rating feature for SPO Pages and the UI Control should be able to display/hide based on the setting.

Steps for turning ON the Rating feature:

  • Document Library Settings -> Rating Settings -> Enable
  • Adding the below tag to the page layout.

    SharePointPortalControls:AverageRatingFieldControl id="PageRatingControl" FieldName="Rating (0-5)" runat="server" />

By doing so, I'm able to see the Rating control on the page but I'm not able to hide it even after disabling the Rating setting.

Am I doing something wrong? I'm thinking of a JSOM way of solving this.
Any suggestions are highly appreciated :)

  • I'm not sure why I couldn't paste the exact SharePoint tag. I have made it visible, only by removing the < tag from the front. – RealSteel Sep 3 '18 at 13:30

If you want to hide the Rating control, we can using the following CSS style to achieve it.

  • I would need to access the rating setting value if it is enabled/disabled in the javascript so that I would apply a CSS fix to make it display/hide. So, I'm looking for a way to access the Rating Setting in Javascript. – RealSteel Sep 4 '18 at 9:54
  • It is not an API can access the Rating Setting in JavaScript code. – LZ_MSFT Sep 5 '18 at 1:48
