I have two tables in my Application (say, table 'A' and 'B', connected with one to many relationship from A to B).
Now user can add the record in table 'B' in two ways
  • By clicking a button in the form of Table A.

  • or By clicking on "+NEW Record" button visible above the table 'B'

I want to disable the second option for the user. i.e., I want user not to be creating the new record by clicking on "+New Record" button. I just need user to create the new record of table B from the Form of Table A.

Is their any way?

No problem,
Edit each Role and there is a setting for the User Interface to Hide the Add Button.  That will prevent users form creating orphans if they must launch off a parent to create a child record.

On this same topic, is there a way once a user selects Add Record from the parent table they do not have the option to "Save & New" from that record.  I want to force them to go back to the parent record & add another record.
Interesting.  I would say that could be claimed to be a bug.  I suggest putting in a support ticket for that, and if you get lucky they would accept that as a bug and not an enhancement request.
