I want to hide the "Save" button in the pop-up window which appears when we add new item.

I tried using javascript getElementById to hide in NewForm.aspx page but it didn't work.

Update: I executed the following code, but didn't work.

        $(".ms-cui-ctl-large .ms-cui-ctl-largelabel:first").text("Request");
  • Is there a reason you are giving people the option to add a list item but then denying them the ability to save it? Is there some other process doing the save?

  • @DaveWise I am using the NewForm.aspx button to be "Request" not "Save". So I changed the button below. But I am not able to change the Ribbon Button "Save". Either I want to hide it or change the text to "Request"

I found a way to hide the save button.

        display: none !important;

Assuming you have jQuery included (and who doesn't these days!) it is simply a matter of executing the script below on the NewForm.aspx page after the ribbon is built.

jQuery(".ms-cui-ctl-large .ms-cui-ctl-largelabel:first").text("Request")

If you need a server-based solution, there's also this article from Microsoft.

  • I have updated my question. I tried but it didn't work.

  • You added the javascript code to newform.aspx, and not the list view page, correct?

  • Yes, I added the script to NewForm.aspx. Not to the list view

  • fwiw, I have had occasional issues using the $ token for jQuery in SharePoint, which is why I use the full name of jQuery(...) instead

  • It didn't work as well. But I hide the commit group. Thats all I wanted. I have added my answer.
