On the first checkout page (checkout/xx/checkout), there is a view which displays line items for the order. The view appears to be named "Shopping cart summary (Commerce Order)"

When I add the standard Delete button to the view (for deleting line items), it causes a Save button to appear below the line items.

How do I remove that Save button?


I tried a form-specific hook_form_alter(), but didn't find the Save button in the $form array. It appears to be a form embedded in another form. Reading answer from @Yogesh made me realize that maybe I had the wrong $form_id and can debug with a general hook_form_alter() and look for a nested call for the embedded form.

One way of doing this is implementing hook_form_alter and hiding save button. Check example below:

function [MODULE_NAME]_form_alter(&$form, &$form_state, $form_id) {
  if ($form_id = 'YOUR_FORM_ID') {
    // Set access to FALSE will prevent rendering form element on form.
    // Check the hierarchy of 'Save' button, before using #access.
    $form['actions']['save']['#access'] = FALSE;
  • I tried this with a form_alter hook that I thought was specific to the form and couldn't find the button in the $form array. It appears to be a form embedded in another form. Maybe I should try a general form_alter hook in case I had the wrong $form_id.

  • Specifically, the form to alter is views_form_commerce_cart_summary_default, and the element to alter is $form['actions']['submit']. It's embedded into the parent form (commerce_checkout_form_checkout) as rendered markup.

  • I had $form['actions']['submit']['#access'], so submit instead of save (maybe because I'm using the workflow module) Commented Feb 27, 2017 at 15:20
