Hi Chico, thanks for your answer.

I'm not sure, if I understand you or if we are on the same page, either is possible.

I have Model A.
I have Records 1, 2 & 3.
3 is "protected" (corresponds to: [('create_uid','!=',1)] permissions: write, unlink) - means: 3 has create_uid = 1

Now on model 1 & 2 user X can do anything he wants, but on record 3 he can't. He doesn't know, that he can't upfront. So I want to disable the edit button for record 3.

Is this possible without JS? (remember, that the button interchange from view mode to edit mode is JS based on a pure client side contextual state: "mode")

Saludos Cordiales

No JS needed. Just group security. 

The edit button needs to be restricted to a certain security group, ideally a group congruent with the users who have write access on the.

I doublechecked, and yes, the edit button is "available" on the tax record which was protected by:

[('create_uid','!=',1)] permissions: write, unlink

Is there any elegant way to disable the create button? I reference the html for what I mean...

<button accesskey="E" class="oe_form_button_edit btn btn-default btn-sm" type="button">Edit</button>

I have a hard time to imagine that I'm the first person stumbling over this behavior...

Christian, where you referring to the same? This would imply that there has been a js script that made this magic in v8, which has gone in v9... Frankly, I doubt that.
