Odoo v7, how to take off "change layout"button from board?

on 7/7/16, 10:42 AM 545 views

I have the following code: 

 <record model="ir.ui.view" id="view_cdr">

<field name="name">cdr.form</field>

<field name="model">board.board</field>

<field name="type">form</field>

<field name="arch" type="xml">

<form string="CDR Form">


<column> <!-- string="Call Detail Record" -->




width="300" colspan="2"/>








<record model="ir.actions.act_window" id="cdr">

<field name="name">Call Detail Record</field>

<field name="res_model">board.board</field>

<field name="view_type">form</field>

<field name="view_mode">form</field>

<field name="view_id" ref="view_cdr"/>


This will generate 2 boards, with some content. But i want to take off the "change layout", that, in my case, is pointless. How can i do this? I try to put the xpath, but it didnt work.

Hide button in board->static->src->xml->board.xml

<button type="button" class="button oe_dashboard_link_change_layout" title="Change Layout..">


NOTE: Use invisible attribute to hide. Better to do it through custom_module.
