Hi there,

is it possible to hide the button Display Options present on the test?

Do I have to create a custom theme for the exam to do this?

I have already read the documentation but have found nothing about this theme :F

Thank you for the response
Best regards

Yes, you'd have to make a custom theme to remove it.
Why don't you want to show it?

Because it could confuse the users, it is a request from my company;
To be honest I think that the button is a good feature, but we have alot of learners that make mistakes easily.

Do you know what I have to change in the custom theme? Do you know the id  that I have to make it `display:none` to hide the Display Option Button?

Thank you for the answer
Antonio

The button doesn't have an id, but the solution I think it is pretty simple, when you make a custom theme you have to delete in the html files these buttons:

<button class="btn btn-default navbar-btn center-block thin-button" type="button" data-bind="click: Numbas.display.showStyleModal" data-localise="control.style options"></button>

There are atleast 4 of them in the default theme.

You have to change 4 files:

- templates/frontpage.html
- templates/menu.html
- templates/nav-menu.html
- templates/nav-sequence.html

After removing these button from the theme it worked!

I also wanted to remove the display options button when I first saw it.  

In reflection, I think that the problem is that the button is too prominent as it is currently displayed.   Its placement and size make it look more important than the pause or end exam buttons.  

Perhaps a better solution would be use a small gear icon somewhere else, since display options are really a user setting.

It seems a good idea for me :)

Yes, I'm open to suggestions on how to improve the appearance of the button. To be honest, I just put it in as a standard <button> tag to get it working, and haven't thought about it since. It needs to be fairly big and prominent, though, because for the people who need it, it needs to be easy to find and to click. I'll do some experimentation.
