Hello Dress Far,

Try this :-

First Solution

<xpath expr="//form/sheet/notebook/page[@name='configuration']" position = "attributes">

     <attribute name="attrs">{'invisible':1}</attribute>


Second Solution :-

<xpath expr="//form/sheet/notebook/page[@name='configuration']" position = "replace" />     

Hope it will works for you.


and a third solution (in case the page has no name and you really have no other solution):
