i want to remove the "editable" attribute from a tree view

<tree string="Phone Calls" editable="top" >

is the original view, i dont want to edit them, to stay update save.

I need somethink link:

<tree string="Phone Calls" editable="none" >

But this did not work. I get a error for not valid xml. Have someone a simular problem and a solution?

To remove editable in tree view you must use only tree string like below :

<tree string="Phone Calls" >

if you want to remove via inherit then try below exmple:

        <record id="view_form_editable_list" model="ir.ui.view">
        <field name="name">objectt.form.editable.list</field>
        <field name="model">object.object</field>
        <field name="inherit_id" ref="view_ref"/>
        <field name="groups_id" eval="[(6, 0, [ref('groups_if_any_in_tree_view'),ref('groups_if_any_in_tree_view'),])]"/>
        <field name="arch" type="xml">
            <xpath expr="//field[@name='one2manyr_line']/tree" position="attributes">
                <attribute name="editable"/>

In groups_id you can add that groups which are in tree views fields so when this all applied group is active then editable is removed from tree view.

I know, but then i have to edit the original tree view, if i add this by a inherited view it will not work. Update the original view is not 'update save' and should be avoid

Correct solution is:

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<xpath expr="//tree" position="attributes">
                <attribute name="editable" />

I have the same issue and I am looking for a solution. If you have found anything please let me know. for the others what I want to do is to be able to open form in treeview witch have editable="bottom/top". I think it's a bug in V8 because this still possible in V6.1.
