Introduction

This article is about hiding fields in the Editform, SharePoint and how you can use jQuery to hide the content type field in an Editform.

So, click on “Add a Web Part” so that we can add a “Content Editor” web part to the form. This is where our JavaScript code goes.

Code

Contrary to the other fields, we have no NOBR tag here. We do have a form label and a select field.

So instead of referencing a field, we will reference the id of the selected field. That id contains a big id number, but also the text “ContentTypeChoice”.

Add code in Content Editor

<script language=”javascript” src=” /JSLibrary/jquery-1.9.0.min.js” type=”text/javascript”></script>

<script language=”javascript” type=”text/javascript”>

$(document).ready(function () {

$(“select[id*=’ContentTypeChoice’]”).closest(‘tr’).hide();

});

</script>
