Pull the site up in SharePoint designer. Go to the list  and right click  on the
list name to get the context menu. Pick properties off the context menu. Click
on the last tab in the properties panel ( I don't remember the name at the
moment.) You will see a dropdown and 4 textboxes. Use the dropdown to select
the content type of the list and then use the textbox currently set to
dispform.aspx to browse to the address of your dispformnew.aspx. This will
replace the existing form  with your custom form.

I already checked this. On "Supporting Files" tab, there is only 3 options i.e.
Default View
New Document Form
Edit Document Properties Form
There is no option for display form.

What kind of list  are you using? I just pulled up a link  list in my demo
environment and I get 4 options (one at the top/three at the bottom) for Default
view, display, new, and edit.

I am using form  library (INfopath)?

Answer #5    Answered By: Beatrice Serrano     Answered On: Dec 19

The forms library would be the problem then. You can't set the dispform.aspx
directly on a document library. Because document libraries display both the
metadata on a display form  and the document using the default application the
dispform.aspx has to be set on the content type, not on the library itself.
Take a look at the BLOG below for information about how to attach a new
dispform.aspx to a content type.

I tried in another way, but it seems I did something wrong. I save
it dispform.aspx as dispformnew.aspx, so in form list  it changes the
path of dispform.aspx to dispformnew.aspx. But here I did one
mistake I modified dispform.aspx rather then dispformnew.aspx.

Now I want to redirect again to dispform.aspx, so how can I re-verse
the save  as process as I did earlier.
