# Hiding transform panel from 3D view properties 'UI' Panel from user?

Almost everything is in the question. I've been browsing the web for a while and couldn't find out a way to hide or at least disable the Properties Transform Panel of the 'View_3D' area. Is there a way to redraw (override the draw) entirely this Panel, by the way? I need the user to be unable to transform the objects otherwise, but by using my custom tools. I've been able to remove every other Panel but this one. Any brilliant idea?

Also, is there a way to simply remove this whole area (and replace it by a new fresh one), or even better redraw completely the area?

• Absolutely, I finally left this panel accessible, and spend my time to develop my application. But in the end, I'll need do it. So I'll be very thankful if you can help with this. Thanks. – Gauthier Boaglio Jan 11 '16 at 21:25
• do you want to draw is somewhere else? – Claas Kuhnen Jan 11 '16 at 21:59

I use this to draw it in the tool shelve

class ObjectTransformation(bpy.types.Panel):
bl_label = "Transformation"
bl_idname = "Transformation"
bl_space_type = 'VIEW_3D'
bl_region_type = 'TOOLS'
bl_category = "Modeling Toolbox"

def draw(self, context):
layout = self.layout
obj = context.object
row = layout.row()
row.column().prop(obj, "location")
row.column().prop(obj, "rotation_euler", text="Rotation")
row.column().prop(obj, "scale")
row = layout.row()

• Yep. As far as I have been digging there was no other way than changing (a few) things in a couple of C files and recompile Blender. But I was hopping some pythonic trick could help with overriding/redrawing the content of the whole Property region. Thanks anyway. Cheers. – Gauthier Boaglio Jan 12 '16 at 20:40
