  • Razvi,

    You can use custom Permission Level with Delete permission removed and item-level or folder-level permissions, but this can cause you a lot of headache managing the broken inheritance of permissions.

    or you could write a event handler to prevent deletion of that item

    as you have asked using Jquery (not a best way of doing though )

    <script type="text/javascript">
            document.getElementById("Ribbon.Documents.Manage-LargeMedium-1-2").style.display = "none";

  • Hi,

    Per my understanding, you might want to show/hide the “Delete” button in the ribbon according to the item selection.

    Sivabalan has offered a code demo about hiding this button, about how to get the selected items in a list using JavaScript, the code snippets in the link below would be helpful:
