Display ribbon when multiple ListViewWebPart on the page

Hello everyone,

Some time ago I wrote about a script to display the ribbon on the pages where several ListViewWebPart were present (see here).

The idea of ​​this script was to simulate a click on a ListViewWebPart to view the ribbon. However, it seems JavaScript function “WPClick” used in SharePoint 2010 does not work correctly on 2013!

To simulate clicking on the Web, we must now use the following script.

ExecuteOrDelayUntilScriptLoaded(ShowContextRibbonSections, "sp.ribbon.js");

function ShowContextRibbonSections(){

    var initInfo = {

          editable: true,isEditMode: false,allowWebPartAdder: false



    var wpcomp = SP.Ribbon.WebPartComponent.get_instance();


         var zc = document.getElementById("MSOZoneCell_WebPartWPQ2");

         wpcomp.selectWebPart(zc, true);



This new script was found by a member of the msdn forums: http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/sharepointdevelopment/thread/c4c988e2-805c-49a4-a5bf-5097dedcef58

Thank Peter Azure for this tip!
