This is a little script that works on classic SharePoint lists (modern lists, you should really use PowerApps to customize it). It'll allow you to format a field row, label or the cell the value is in. Similar to: Yes, it's ugly, but I wanted to highlight it plainly: formatRow - allows you to format... Continue Reading →
A very typical approach for client side development in SharePoint is to throw the code onto the page where you need it. You can alternatively put into the master page, but generally speaking, most code doesn't need to run on each and every page. The following describes my preferred, tried and true, method of handling this.... Continue Reading →

SharePoint Script: Hide, Disable and Format your fields
