I'm looking for a way to hide a button from the ribbon using javascript, but to do this I need to wait until the elements of the ribbon are loaded.

Is there a way to detect such event?

  • Any reason why you can not use a HideCustomAction: msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms414790.aspx – Robert Lindgren May 17 '13 at 9:10
  • Because I want to hide the Action under some conditions – must19 May 17 '13 at 9:12
  • Must19, i have similar issue of DOM being not available. How were you able to accomplish this? Thanks – user21997 Jan 15 '14 at 23:02

Here is some js that should load efter the ribbon is loaded:

SP.SOD.executeOrDelayUntilScriptLoaded(function() {
         // Your code here

More about modifying in this blogpost


// Fires ‘ribbontabselected’ after the ribbon has been initialized after load
ExecuteOrDelayUntilScriptLoaded(function () {
var pm = SP.Ribbon.PageManager.get_instance();
pm.add_ribbonInited(function () {
 // Your code here
}, ‘sp.ribbon.js’);

from here

  • Thanx for the response. I tried this before, but do not garantee that the elements are attached to the dom. – must19 May 17 '13 at 9:24
  • Well I am not aware of any other events like "ribbon is loaded", so maybee you have to add a small delay in your code just to make sure all is loaded and well – Robert Lindgren May 17 '13 at 9:28
  • Updated with a more "complex" sample – Robert Lindgren May 17 '13 at 9:32
  • This worked fine. Thanx for helping – must19 May 17 '13 at 9:51
