It’s very common that we need to do the customization using JavaScript Library (e.g. jQuery, jQuery UI, etc.).

1. Download jQuery into a folder

2. Open SharePoint Designer

3. Open Site Assets, then click Import Files

4. Click Add Folder… to import the jquery folder

5. jquery Folder uploaded to Site Assets

6. Open SharePoint List Form, and enable Advanced Mode editing

7. Reference jQuery library and customization in the PlaceHolderAdditionalPageHead Content Control

<asp:Content ContentPlaceHolderId="PlaceHolderAdditionalPageHead" runat="server">
    <SharePoint:DelegateControl runat="server" ControlId="FormCustomRedirectControl" AllowMultipleControls="true"/>
    <SharePoint:UIVersionedContent UIVersion="4" runat="server"><ContentTemplate>
        <SharePoint:CssRegistration Name="forms.css" runat="server"/>
    <script src="../../SiteAssets/jquery/jquery-2.1.4.min.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
    <script type="text/javascript">
        $(document).ready(function() {
            alert("You are running jQuery version: " + $.fn.jquery);
