I have created a Doctor database to store the information about specific doctor such as Dr. Name, Qualification, years of experience etc. When we click on NEW (means - user would like to enter new record to database hence, in this case - All fields must be in WRITE mode only.

When user would like to update the existing records (Which is nothing but - Clicked on EDIT button), in Quick activity(QA) list - I would like to make selected field as Readable only (which means- user should not be able to edit the selected fields)

Kindly suggest how to make the fields as read-only in EDIT mode?

Could you open the screen in Edit Master Layout, then click the field properties and mark as read-only?

Hi Mark,

If I make those fields as Read-only then I will not be able to create even new record.

Scenario is like:

Step 1- Created a record and saved it.

Step 2- Now I would like to edit the above record and condition is - I would like to see few of the fields( as per requirement) must be in Read-only.

Ah i see i misunderstood.

Could you create a Rule on the field itself, under the read-only property, to say whenever the record is equal to status X, then that specific field is turned read-only?

Hi Sandico,

Thanks for your feedback. Request you to please elaborate it in details.

1. Create rule - did you mean that logic needs to be implemented in ABSL to accommodate this requirement?

OR

2. Is there any other way to do the configuration under properties tab to include/create rule to accommodate this requirement?

Kindly suggest.

Many thanks.

Regards,

Sumit.

In adaptation mode (Edit master layout), you can create a Rule on the field property of read-only (see attached screens)
