How to Disable Some Action Buttons

Actions are defined on the entity level. When you combine more Screen Sections on one screen, buttons from all the involved entities will be displayed.

There are two options if you don’t want all Action buttons to be visible:

Show Everywhere, Hide Sometimes

If you generally want to allow the buttons to be visible but on some screens you want to hide them, you can disable them per screen section:

  1. Open the screen
  2. Select the screen section bound to the entity of which the buttons should be hidden
  3. In Properties find DisableActionButtons and set it to False

The action buttons will not be shown for this section’s entity.

Show on One SCREEN Only

If a specific button is designed only for one particular screen, you can directly limit the UI Action by selecting the Screen item in the action’s properties. By selecting a form you limit the action only to that screen.
