You know what users hate? Ugly, unusable SharePoint forms. You know what developers hate? Cracking open Visual Studio or InfoPath for minor form modifications. There must be a better option. In this session, you'll learn how to use jQuery to transform SharePoint's out-of-the-box forms to make them dynamic, stylized and more usable without needing Visual Studio or InfoPath.

You will learn:

  • How to hide, show and pre-populate SharePoint Form fields
  • How to create cascading drop-down lists and custom field validations
  • How to turn your bland SharePoint form into a visually stunning masterpiece
