Normally when we create a SharePoint List before adding any new item you will find a default text stating no item is there. For example in announcements list you may find
There are no items to show in this view of the “Announcements” list. To create a new item, click “New” above.
That’s great. But what if the user is not having permission to create a new item or if you have removed the toolbar of the web part. Or think you have displayed an Announcement web part in your home page, asking the visitor to create a new announcement.
To change this default text displayed use the script below
var a = document.getElementsByTagName(“TD”)
for (var i=0;i<a.length;i++)
if (a[i].innerText.indexOf(“There are no items to show in this view of the “Announcements” list. “)>-1)
a[i].innerHTML = “Coming Soon..”;
You just want to change the “There are no items to show in this view of ” text for different lists.
