Hide List Button for some Profiles

Hi,

 

I am looking for a way to Display and Hide a Button placed on LIST  View of records, like All Contacts list view where I place a button to Update selected records, but I Do NOT Want ALL users to SEE that button, I only want Users of Certain Profile which can see the Button and then click it to Update Records.

 

How can I achieve this ?

If you remove the ability of the profile to create a new contact, that button should be removed.  This can be done by editing the profile.  Not sure about the mass update, i think that may also be a profile setting.

 

This is a feature of the declarative application configuration , not controlled by Visualforce.

Visualforce would not allow you to modify a list view directly. 

 

You can create a custom field, formula field, on the object itself.  This formula would show a link if the profile matched the one you wanted, and show something else otherwise.

AQAQ
Could the mass update button be eliminated by removing the edit privlege from the profile and then handling edit security manually on teh visual force page?

Did anybody find a solution for this? I have a custom button on a advanced list view that I would like to hide/show based on profiles.
