Create List Definition

2. Open Element.xml for editing the List Name.

Edit last name

3. Open another “Element.xml” under NewTestDef and add a “Custom Action”.

Add Custom Action

4. Deploy the solutions and then check.

Solution Explorer


protected void Button2_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)



      “ShowMessage”, string.Format(“<script type=’text/javascript’>alert(‘Hello..!’)</script>”);
