List View - Remove Group By Headers - Column Names RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a List View web part using Group By. However, when you do that, it uses the Actual column name with a colon in the visual representation.

    Also, there is a bar with the name of the column showing.

    I don't want to have either of these showing. I have found pages on the net that tell you how to do this using SPD, but because that causes unghosting, we don't use SPD.

    Also, I found this, using Javascript:

    This works. However, it removes the Editing components of the ribbon also - you can't go back later and do any editing.

    Does anyone have any other ideas on this?

    I try to reproduce the issue using the code you provided, however, I can edit the items.

  • I found a script here:


    however, if you use it, beware that there are several places where the quotes are not standard (like 'smart' quotes in MSWord) and need to be fixed before it will work
