Read only People Picker Fields in SharePoint List Forms(editform.aspx) Jqury


How to Make SharePoint List Column (Form Field) Read Only, There are questions on disabling (or making them read-only) People Picker, Lookup Fields in SharePoint List Forms. Here I'm sharing the jQuery scripts to disable people picker / Lookup fields in SharePoint list forms (EditForm.aspx).



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

$(document).ready(function () {

var control = $("textarea[title='People Picker']")[0];
/* Detect browser*/
        if (navigator.appName == 'Microsoft Internet Explorer') {
        control.parentNode.parentNode.parentNode.parentNode.parentNode.parentNode.childNodes[1].style.display = "none";
        else {

        control.parentNode.parentNode.parentNode.parentNode.parentNode.parentNode.childNodes[2].style.display = "none";

var innerHtml = control.parentNode.parentNode.innerHTML;
control.parentNode.style.display = "none";
control.parentNode.parentNode.parentNode.parentNode.parentNode.innerHTML = control.parentNode.parentNode.parentNode.parentNode.parentNode.innerHTML + "<span class='fieldsTitle'>" + $('.ms-inputuserfield #content').text() + "</span>";


Before this jQuery the People Picker was like this:



In this way I was able to disable/ Read Only a People Picker control in a Sharepoint editform.aspx list form.

Hope it will be a help to you!
