  • Hi Anuj,

    You can write a small JavaScript  which you can inject by using a Content Editor web part on the Allitems.aspx and other ASPX Pages related to this list:

    <script language="javascript">     _spBodyOnLoadFunctionNames.push("HideNewControls");      function HideNewControls() {     $('#Ribbon.ListItem.New.NewListItem - Large').hide();     $('#Ribbon.ListItem.New.NewFolder - Large').hide();     $('#idHomePageNewLink').hide();     $('#Ribbon.List.ViewFormat.Datasheet - Large').hide() } </script> 
    I did a similar stuff using JQuery to hide the options. Try to view the pafe source in IE developer tool by pressing the F12 & check the control ID, based on the you can modify the JScript & use it on load with check system datetime etc.

    hope that helps.

  • Hii amit,

    thanx for your response,i was trying to simply use your script to disable Add new item without applying any logic to check for Days of the week,but it was not working.May be i am not able to get the correct Control ID of Add new item.

    Control ID which i am getting through viewing the source code of the page is  Similar to original i.e Add new item.

  • Hi Anuj,

    I just tested on my machine & got the ID as "idHomePageNewItem", added an attribute as Display(CSS) as None, I was able to get that.
