    create an edit form button

    Hi. I have a form (customize sharepoint list form). Regular users can submit a new item using a custom submit button. Approvers can approve with another submit button. Through workflows I send the list items to a calendar. When opening the calendar item, I can select the ItemID and open the form in VIEW mode. Now to Edit I can select the "Edit Item" from the ribbon. This is the only time I need to use something from the ribbon. Is it possible to hide the ribbon completely, and edit the item with another custom button on the form? I want to prevent people using the "Save" button from the ribbon, as the submit button does a lot more then saving. (ie keeping track of an edit counter etc.) Thanx for thinking with me. grtz, Twan

    Looks like you can change the PageType parameter in the link to be 6 or 8 and it will open in Edit mode. There's probably more info out there on this. PageType=4 is view (i.e. read only). Not sure what the difference between PageType=6 and PageType=8 is. Maybe you can spend a few minutes searching and add to the elucidation.

    I know I have removed the ribbon from a few of my forms by simply editing the web part as shown here.

    You can also use rules to switch views, so you can setup an image or a button on the Edit form and set a rule to switch the view to the New form on click.  Again this is something I use quite a lot to prevent the wrong people tampering with the data in the wrong views.
