Setting readonly property for several fields at runtime

Hi all,

I have a first screen with an ID number field.

I have a second screen with several fields with contact information (name, lastname, telephone...).

I want to access this second screen either in display or change mode.

I did my research (help, SDN) and have set up as follows:

- a context attribute isReadOnly type WDY_BOOLEAN

- first screen, button display: in the code I set isReadOnly true

- I bound all the input fields in second screen to isReadOnly (actually to their Read Only property)

I understood that thanks to the binding, the fields should be automatically greyed out.

I see in debug that the context attribute is correctly set to true.

Always in debug, the readonly property of the field is "Value not determined"

What am I missing?

    • Thank you For the information.

      I really thought that I could bind one attribute to many input fields but just would not work.

      So I have one attribute isReadOnly, and I test it in WDDOINIT of second screen.

      If true I set the read only property of every field separately.

      It works even though I am unhappy. Don't see why the other way did not work...

      Thank you!
