conditionally control read/edit properties

edited May 8, 2019 in Ideas
I'd love it if I could set conditions for a field editor's "Default Mode" property, such as based on the values of fields in my models. This would allow sections of my page to be read-only if the "Status" field is "Approved", or if the current user is of a certain role/profile.

    Peter,  we had the same Idea when we were dreaming up conditional rendering.  Showing and Hiding is merely one of the outcomes that should be possible based on conditions.  Obviously we haven't put that in place,  but we feel we have a framework that leads us toward it.  Thanks for your confirmation of our intuitions...

    A work around would be having two sections that have identical fields. Then you can conditionally render one section that is editable if "Approved" is checked. The other section would be conditionally rendered if "Approved" is not checked and that section would be read-only.

    Hi, Any update on supporting conditional editability?

    Hi, any update on this? I have a lot of fields and so don't want to have another field editor with rendering condition. Would be great if there is any way to make the field editor conditionally read-only. Thanks!
