Would be great to have a field attribute "read only"
In Multi User Applications it is important to have protected fields and layouts.
So far I used calculated fields. e.g. the field «name» had a corresponding calculated field «calculatedname» = «name»
This allowed the users to copy the fields content without having the risk to modify the field content.
If there would be a field attribute "read only" it would reduce the number of fields dramatically in bigger applications.
We could use the same field let's say in an "edit" Layout and in a protected "browse" Layout and just change that attribute.
Providing this conditionally would be even better see NOT EDIT FIELD WHEN
