I work on drupal 7, I added all js by info file, work well in whole site. But we want to remove or not load of a specific js in a specific content type page.

I try by template.php of following code

function mytheme_preprocess_page(&$vars) {
  if (isset($vars['node']->type) && !empty($vars['node']->type) && ($vars['node']->type == 'my_content_type')) {
    $js_path = drupal_get_path('theme', 'mytheme') . "/js/xyz.js";

but load xyz.js. How to remove of this js file.

You can use hook_js_alter()

Perform necessary alterations to the JavaScript before it is presented on the page.


$javascript: An array of all JavaScript being presented on the page.

Then you should be able to use menu_get_object() to load the node type and unset the js file in the $javascript array.

function MYTHEME_js_alter($javascript) {
  $node = menu_get_object();
  if ($node->type == 'node_type) {

Note: I haven't tested this or checked syntax, let me know if it doesn't work and I will test.
