Field attribute "read only" on layout level

    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
