How can you remove the Save button on a survey?

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 13, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
What options are there to remove the SAVE button from a SharePoint survey?I need to remove this if possible, I was hoping it would be as simple as editing a form in the Survey list... but that is apparently not the case.I need to supress the SAVE button as it confuses end users and we don't want any half completed surveys. Either it gets finished or not at all.Can someone hopefully provide me with an nice simple solution?  Or any solution at all :)Thanks!

Creating a "Save Button" in a browser based Form

I'm not sure if I'm missing something obvious, but I need to have the funtionality of the "Save Button", which is available and works on the tool bar, available in the form...and I can't seem figure out how to do it.I've found examples, in this forum, of how to use the "Submit Button" to act as the "Save Button", which did work for me, but only when specific basic criteria was met.The criteria that I now have is that I'm initiating a workflow to automatically start when a new item is created.  My workflow then moves the form to one of a few possible different form libraries, based on the logic in my workflow.  The different form libraries are to manage different teams of people that would have access to the Form and then that team would process the form accordingly.My specific situation: 1 - User opens a new form (works) 2 - User enters data and then submits the new form (works) 3 - Workflow is initiated and the form is moved to another form library to be worked on by a select group of people (works) 4 - The form is opened and reviewed and some changes are made to the form data by the select group of people (works) 5 - The form data in the form libary is updated (works, but only if the save button is pressed in the tool bar and then manually closes t

need help to implement validation with save button

Ribbon Save Button Causes Validation


On a publishing site in 2010, it appears that the ribbon save button triggers validation on validators that have a specific validation group defined.  I'm confused as to how this happens, but it apparently does.

I have a web part with a simple input form and some validators.  When switching out of edit mode, the validators are triggered and the page won't switch back to normal view.

Any ideas?

Help creating an Add/Remove button for data entry

I have a form that is currently made up of 4 items:  DateTime Picker, Origin TextBox, Destination TextBox, and a read only Mileage TextBox. Each row represents one entry. I have two buttons next to each entry for Adding and Removing entry lines.  How would I go about coding those buttons to do just that?

Save button on custom EditForm.aspx locks record



I am having an issue with my EditForm.aspx on a list. My problem is that when I make a change to a record and click save (and it brings me back to the page), the first set of changes are saved fine but if I then enter more content and click save without refreshing the page I get the error:

 Save Conflict.

Your changes conflict with those made concurrently by another user. If you want your changes to be applied, click Back in your Web browser, refresh the page, and resubmit your changes.


This is the code that I am using for my save button:

<input type="button" value="Save Changes" name="btnFormAction" onclick="javascript: {ddwrt:GenFireServerEvent('__commit')}" style="padding: 5px; border-style: none; background-color: #21374c; color: #FFF; font-weight: bold; font-size: 14px;" />

 Is there something I need to add to my code that unlocks the record once it has been saved?

Thanks in advance for the help :)


How do you save state of a toggle button after partial postback?


lets say you  have the toggle buttons from this page: http://www.filamentgroup.com/examples/buttonFrameworkCSS/

and you put it in a UpdatePanel AJAX...  so lets say on a partialpostback.. when you re-create teh controls on server-side, the state of whether or not those buttons were pushed is long-lost and gone.. so how then how do you remember those states?

Can I save each button state into viewstate or session state?  regenerate each button then call the javascript function to change its color-state depending on the session state variable?


Save as template button is disabled



I want to save a site as template so I can create a new site based on this template.
In SP2007 this was easy by opening site settings > site actions > save as template
In SP2010 this link is missing, and in SharePoint Designer the button in the ribbon is greyed out.

All of the sites in SharePoint show this behavior, I cannot save any of my sites as template (the link is not there in SharePoint, and in SPD the button is disabled).
Do I need to enable some feature in SP2010 first in order to use this functionality ?

AutoPostBack issue with other web controls resulting in multiple clicks on "Save" Button


A new ASP.NET web application that I've been working on has among other web controls on the DetailView, a DropDownList for Category (ddlCategory) a TextBox for Quantity (txtQuantity) a Label for the Rate (lblRate) and a Label for the Amount (lblAmount) along with a Save button (btnSave), etc.; there are also TabIndexes set to progressively navigate from control-to-control ending on the Save button.  NOTE: the user would like to see the Rate & Amount values in the DetailView prior to saving the record.

The Rate is determined by the selected the Category so I have the AutoPostBack property set to "true" on ddlCategory to make a call to the database to retrieve the Rate on the SelectedIndexChanged event; likewise, the AutoPostBack property on txtQuantity is set to "true" in order to compute the Amount (and populate lblAmount) once the user enters a Quantity.  Theoretically, the user could enter the values sequentially and still go back to change the Category prior to the save so simply performing some client-side JavaScript to compute the Amount would not be bulletproof.

Everything works according to plan when the user tabs from control-to-control {e.g., Category > Quantity > Save}, or tabs off the control.  However, the problem occurs when the user enters all the values and then clicks on the Save button without tabbing off the

PreSaveAction is not firing for a custom save button on a Custom List Form

Hi Everybody,
I've created a custom list form using SPD. Now I want to put a custom button for saving and redirecting to another page based on a logic. I am using following script for making a custom Save button.

<input type="button" value="Submit" name="Submit" onclick="{ddwrt:GenFireServerEvent('__commit;__redirect={Confirm.aspx}')}  " />
When the user clicks this button, I am able to save the values, but the validation I have implemented in the PreSaveAction() is not getting activated. I don't understand where the problem is.

Is validation with PreSaveAction()  works only with OOB SaveButton ?

Thanks in advance,

How to override functionality of the Ribbon Save button ?


Dear all,

I have a custom editform for my library which I generated using SharePoint Designer.

This custom form also includes the Save button on the form itself along with the the ribbon save button. I need to add additional functionality to my save.

The button on the form is a SharePoint:SaveButton webcontrol...

< SharePoint:SaveButton runat="server"/>

I can override this adding my own functionality like this

public class CustomSaveButton : SaveButton
 Control c;
 protected override void OnInit(EventArgs e)

 protected override bool SaveItem()
	// Do the custom code here..
	return base.SaveItem();

After this I can add back my custom save to the form.. like below

<%@Assembly Name="CustomOverrideControls, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=uhdsksuew9832iwe82" %>

<CustomOverrideControls:CustomSaveButton TemplateName="SaveButtonNew" runat="server"/>


All this is fine.. but what if the user skips this button and clicks on the 'Save' button on the Ribbon.. my custom code will not be executed :(

Question is how can I override the save functionality of the Ribbon Save button ?

Any help appreciated.



Remove the Modal Dialog 'Page' Button


Hello ...

Throughout my SP 2010 / InfoPath2010 site, I have a number of Modal Dialogs that were developed with InfoPath2010.  Everything is working fine apart from one nagging problem ... each Modal Dialog appears with the 'PAGE' button at the top.  Clicking it opens up the toolbar with various options available. 

How do I get rid of this?  Or is it only appearing because I've got admin access?
