    My guess is that you are developing an ISR based HCM form, if that's so then you can do this programatically as follows:-

    For dynamic validations like for e.g. Only the initiator should have the ability to change his/her own data in forms and when the forms go for approval the approver should only get a read-only copy of the form then write below code in form:ready event of the Subform where the control is.

    For e.g: If u have a control called TextField1 in Subform1 then put the code in form:ready event of Subform1 and change the language to Javascript.

    var modeVal = xfa.record.CONTROL_PARAM.ISR_MODE.value;
    if(modeVal == 'CHANGE')
    {"INSIDE Create if");
    TextField1.access = 'readOnly';
    {"Else Create if");
    TextField1.access = 'open';

    PS: I get value as CHANGE for approver. If you get anything else then change the code accordingly.
