How do you disable new button on lookup

I have a Model Drive App and want to disable the New record button on a Lookup. 

Most of what I have read is you can remove access to create the new record using permissions. I don't want to do it that way. I want users to create the record but not to do it via the Lookup record. 

I also have read that it can be done by unsupported code. But don't way to do that either.

Hi @365-Assist,

 

This can only be controlled by restricting create privileges using Security Roles. Using any other method is an unsupported customization.

 

If you want this to be added as a future feature, you can suggest it in the ideas section.

Hi all,
is it possible to hide the '+ New Record'-Button in a similar way from the dialog-popup after clicking the 'Add Existing ...'-Button of a subgrid?

Hi @AbdulEsen,

Unfortunately, I haven't found a way to manually remove that. It possible to remove/hding the Add New in the SubGrid section by editing the ribbon/command button with the XrmToolBox RibbonWorkbench. or by simply removing the create privileges on that entity/table.

Hope this helps!

 

Thank you very much for your response! The alternative solutions mentioned are known to me. However, in my case these are not a viable option.
