List Tools on Ribbon not visible when add more WebParts to List DataSheet view page

I have notice one weird issue when we add more WebParts to SharePoint List DataSheet View page. There are two known issues i found:

1. List View Selector goes off

2. List Tools goes off

Thanks to Alexander Bautz Using his script i am able to solve first issue. But still 2nd issue is present. I don’t know whether Microsoft aware of this issue or not. Not found any details regarding same on MSDN blogs.

Anyway, Below are the steps to reproduce the issue:

1. Create a new view for existing list. Select view type as DataSheet View.

2. If you focus on DataSheet view, you can see both View Selector and List Tools on Ribbon. (see figure 1)

3. Edit DataSheet view page and insert CEWP. Save the page.

4. Now notice both View selector and List Tools gone. In below image View selector is visible because of Alex script. (see figure 2)

Will update this post when i found some solution. If any reader face this same issue and have solution please blog me.

Thanks & Regards,

Rajan

    You probably already figured this out but, if you click in the list, it should show you the tools. Until it is the focused part of the site you are looking at, it will not display the menu.
