SharePoint Default List Form and InfoPath

Scenario

Require custom Display form, remain default New and Edit item form for a SharePoint custom list.

Steps

Create custom InfoPath form to replace default DispForm.aspx.

Problem

SharePoint list automatically associate edit form from InfoPath. Using SharePoint Designer to set the default form does not work.

Solution

  1. Go to List Settings > Form Settings > choose “Use the default SharePoint form” without checking “Delete the InfoPath Form from the server”. This will reset the list to use back all the default form.
  2. Go to SharePoint Designer, select displayifs.aspx and Set as Default. This will set the InfoPath form as the default display form.
