Hide dropdown values from choice fields in SharePoint via jQuery

May 11th, 2011 | Posted by Marijn in jquery / javascript | sharepoint

Hi all,
Yet another blogpost about jQuery. This time we are going to hide some values in a dropdown field. This is not a way to create a cascaded dropdown, but it could be helpful if you want the users to be able to not select something when a specific rule is met.
Example: you cannot set a status to reviewed if you are not a manager.


<script language="javascript" type="text/javascript">
$(document).ready( function() {
  var dropdown = $(":input[title='DropdownField']");
  dropdown.find("option[value=’value 1’]").remove();
  dropdown.find("option[value='value 2']").remove();
  dropdown.find("option[value='value 3']").remove();

So, what does this do ?
When our page is loaded, we create a variable and fill it up with the dropdown field. Next we can remove all options in there.
