I'm trying to hide the "Save and Add Another" button on the form used to save new products.

I can access the "Save" button in the $form array at $form['actions']['submit']. However, I'm not seeing the "Save and Continue" button in $form.

I looked in commerce_product_ui.module and found the place where this form element is being added. It's called $form['actions']['save_continue']. I would expect to see it in the $form array, but again - it just doesn't seem to be there.

Thanks for your help.

    I know it's not the right way but #edit-save-continue {display:none;} it's the only way i found. I've tried with dsm($page) and I don't find the second button either... Aug 23, 2012 at 15:51
  • @Syd Barret, I am interested of this, where you do dsm($page) - I want to reproduce the situation, for experimental purpose

  • Do you want to know where to pur dsm($page)? you should put it in your tpl.php file, it could be page.tpl.php or node.tpl.php or node--CONTENT-TYPE.tlp.php or view.tpl.php Aug 24, 2012 at 8:42
  • my question was about this particular situation as it is, because I put dsm() in custom module in alter or hook_preprocess function, and I use commerce module - not Profile commerce kickstart, it does not matter now, it is still useful

implement hook_form_alter

function hook_form_alter(&$form, &$form_state, $form_id) { 
  if ($form_id == 'commerce_product_ui_product_form') {
  • While I agree this should work, ['save_continue'] does not exist in $form['actions'] for some reason. Aug 23, 2012 at 17:29
  • This answer is technically correct - I just needed to figure out how to alter the form after it was finished being built. Aug 24, 2012 at 16:23

I finally realized why this element didn't exist in $form at the time.

The Commerce Kickstart module had a higher weight than the module than I wrote, hence it included elements in $form after my call to hook_form_alter().

There are two distinct solutions to this:

1.) Increase the weight of my module (to make sure it's called after Commerce Kickstart.)

2.) Optionally, you can add an #after_build array to $form. This will let you add functions that are called after the form is built.
