    Hello Nikhil,

    I am not sure from where comes the reference to is_modal variable. I am not familiar with such a variable, but from the name it would more refer to modal popup window rather than being related to editability of a view.

    The view is typically switched to editable or non-editable mode using the view_group_context of the view controller. As for read-only mode for individual fields, it can be achieved through get_i_XXX methods. The button state is managed in get_buttons method which supplies the buttons from application to framework.

    I hope this clarifies,

      I was confused with the usage of that new attribute which I heard off. I was thinking this attribute is introduced in the new release of crm web client . Thanks a lot for spending your valuable time on this. I did this as you menioned above.
