SharePoint Add-in: Get Rid of Microsoft Header

I'm developing a SharePoint add-in with Visual Studio 2015 using JavaScript and want to remove the default headers/navigation Microsoft includes, specifically what's in the red box:

SP Add-In Default Header
I assume these are included via the default .aspx code which looks like:

<%-- The following 4 lines are ASP.NET directives needed when using SharePoint components --%>

<%@ Page Inherits="Microsoft.SharePoint.WebPartPages.WebPartPage, Microsoft.SharePoint, Version=15.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=71e9bce111e9429c" MasterPageFile="~masterurl/default.master" Language="C#" %>

<%@ Register TagPrefix="Utilities" Namespace="Microsoft.SharePoint.Utilities" Assembly="Microsoft.SharePoint, Version=15.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=71e9bce111e9429c" %>
<%@ Register TagPrefix="WebPartPages" Namespace="Microsoft.SharePoint.WebPartPages" Assembly="Microsoft.SharePoint, Version=15.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=71e9bce111e9429c" %>
<%@ Register TagPrefix="SharePoint" Namespace="Microsoft.SharePoint.WebControls" Assembly="Microsoft.SharePoint, Version=15.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=71e9bce111e9429c" %>

Open in new window


But I can't wholesale delete those lines without generating a page that simply doesn't run (error is 'An unexpected error has occurred').

What's the correct way to customize?

Thanks!

what you'll have to do is use CSS to hide it from the UI rather then remove it, now your sharepoint add in runs in an iFrame so i don't think you'll be able to it there without the iFrame trick (https://github.com/InstanceOfAnObject/IFrameOrchestrator) there I believe you'll be able to fire javascript from your add in into the host web that will then be able to update the css of your host page.

that or I think you can inject it into the page using the Script Editor webpart
https://sharepoint.protiviti.com/blog/Lists/Posts/Post.aspx?ID=169

with both you'll have to find the selector for the css container of what you want to hide

I suspected using CSS to hide is the approach - thanks for the info. Below is the CSS I added for anyone interested:

#globalNavBox {
    display: none !important;
}

#suiteBarDelta {
    display: none !important;
}

Open in new window


Thank you!
