Control a field's properties - to toggle the field between Optional and Read Only
I have a form that a user will open to enter additional info in (say for example after the first quarter of the year has passed).
With that, they can update new fields on the form that are specifically for quarterly updates.
But on the original fields that were provided to them when they entered their Business Plan info, there may be fields they didn't enter data into. I would like to make the fields on the form that are 'empty' to be optional but fields that they did enter data into flipped to be read only so they can't edit previous data but only enter data into fields that they left blank.
How can I do this say when the form loads to sweep through the fields and mark those RO and leave the others option to edit, say in some code or otherwise? Any insight or examples would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks I am using Metastorm Version 9.1
