I tend to need to do this sort of thing a lot recently, and it’s not as simple as looking for a pre-fetched value sitting in the DOM somewhere, so I figured I better blog it and then I’ll know where to find it. Here’s my code (below). All you have to do is call Read More

Hiding Empty SharePoint Web Parts Using JavaScript/jQuery on a Dashboard Page

June 22, 2014

Note 2: This also should work just fine in Office 365, so get ready to knock some socks off. In SharePoint 2013 we at itgroove have a Read More
