Does anyone know how to lock a single field in a record so it cant be edited? I have a modified date field that I would like to lock so it cannot be edited by the users. Thanks! FM Pro 9
In layout mode, select the field and then choose Field/Control>Behavior… from the Format menu. Then uncheck "In Browse Mode".
You could also set this field to view only in the user's Privilege Set or Prohibit modification of the value in the field options.
That locks the field everywhere.
If you want to keep users from editing a field on a specific layout but not others:
is there a way to set up a field so that you can enter data only one and then lock it.
Basicaly I want to make a button that signs the document.
I have the Fields "Electronically signed by" and "Signature Date" and a button with ascript to fill in current user and date.
If I do the following:
Then the button does not work and if i go with your second option:
then it works but if I press the button again a second time it opens the fields for modification.
If there is another way to sign the documents that could work too.
You might adapt the method described in this thread:
Or you might Use Field/Control | Behavior to prohibit browse mode access and write a script that uses Go To Field to place the cursor in the field. This script can check to see if access should be permitted or not.
