Disallow Edits


The Disallow Edits action prevents the user from making any changes to records in the specified form or browse window. If the data entry style is set to modal, then edits will automatically be disallowed after the record is saved.


  1. Make a selection in the Disallow editing of the records in which Form/Browse window? field. This field will be grayed out unless this action is based on a Form or Browse. The choices are:

    • "Current Form or Browse Window".

    • "Another Form or Browse Window".

  2. If you selected "Another Form or Browse Window", in the Window Name field select either:

    • "Forms"
    • "Browses"
  3. Select one of the listed forms or browses.

  4. Click Next >.

  5. Optionally modify the comment that describes the action.

  6. Click Finish.
