Business requirement: Hide list fields upon creation / modification of a SharePoint list item
Suppose you want to hide a SharePoint list field upon creation of a list item and to show it upon modification of that same list item. Suppose you want to hide another SharePoint list field upon modification of a list item and to show it upon creation of a list item in that same SharePoint list.
This is something which cannot be achieved by using merely the out-of-the-box administration tools of SharePoint.
Solution: use the SharePoint Tips Utility Pack
Ishai Sagi developped a great package of utilities which can be downloaded from CodePlex: SharePoint Tips Utility Pack. With this tool you can modify some of the field settings of a SharePoint list which cannot be modified in the regular SharePoint interface.
To start using the SharePoint Tips Utility Pack, you need to install it on your SharePoint server, as the tool will only run if installed directly on your SharePoint server. The installation is very straight forward, as it comes with a Microsoft Installer package (MSI).
To show the strength and functionality of the SharePoint Tips Utility Pack, create a Custom List (call it Custom List) in your SharePoint environment and add to it following Single line of text fields with default settings:
If you created the SharePoint Custom List correctly, it should look like this:
By default, both fields ShowOnlyUponCreation and ShowOnlyUponModification will appear on both the NewForm.aspx and the EditForm.aspx pages.
We are going to modify in the next steps the SharePoint field settings as such that the ShowOnlyUponCreation field will only be visible upon creation of a new SharePoint list item. The ShowOnlyUponModification will only be visible upon modification of an existing SharePoint list item.
When you create a new SharePoint list item in the Custom List, you will notice that the ShowOnlyUponModification SharePoint field is not visible anymore.
When you edit the SharePoint list item, you will notice that only the ShowOnlyUponModification SharePoint field will be visible.
