Hide edit button from sales order IF a field is true

I'm developing a module that links openerp to a warehouse management system (Accellos One). I need to prevent sales orders from being edited while the orders are processed by the warehouse management system.

The module adds two fields to the sales order view. One of these fields is boolean. When this field is set to true, I need to remove the Edit button, When false, it need to be visible.

I can hide the edit button in the view.xml:

<xpath expr='//form[@string="Sale Order"]' position='attributes'>
     <attribute name="edit">false</attribute>

How do I hide the edit button when my filed is set to true?

Many thanks, Tony.

What do you mean with this question? By default, when an order is confirmed, you cannot edit anything, except the customer reference and the notes on the order. What causes you to want to remove the Edit-button?

Thanks Patrick, you right, nothing of any importance can be edited after the order has been confirmed. What i need to do is to stop modifications to the Delivery Orders. Our warehouse software takes care of this.

In that case you want to remove the edit-rights of every one regarding stock.picking en stock.move. But do not remove create, because they need to create the Delivery order.....

You can use Access Rights and Groups instead of hide edit button.

See Following Links,

Security in OpenERP: users, groups

But his question is about people who have access rights, and want to hide the edit, depending on a valiue of the boolean-field.
