IFS community, greetings

 

Following the creation of a custom field type persistent and data type "Text",

 

I am unable to enter a value into the field. It is actually grayed out.

 

Do you have any idea why the custom field is behaving in this manner? Text cannot be entered.

 

I do not believe it is a security issue as I am using the AO account.

 

Note is my TEXT custom field.   For more information, please refer to the screenshot (see below)

However, why does the application allow the creation of persistent fields? The application should only allow read-only fields to be created.

 

The LU ‘InventoryPartInStock’ allow persistent CF’s. You can edit them through code. Just not in this window.

E.g. make a RMB that transfer to a CLU. There you can type in a value for you CF. On save, fire an event that copy the value back to InventoryPartInStock.

Hello @Hans Andersen 

Thank you for your response.

Now it makes sense.

However, why does the application allow the creation of persistent fields? The application should only allow read-only fields to be created.

In the past, when you attempted to create a custom field for view-only pages, IFS displayed a large text string indicating "View Only Page". 

Thank you very much, @Hans Andersen  for your prompt response.

@ZTC ZTC JGOTA ,

This window is read-only for all fields. All changes have to done with RMB or elsewhere.

Hello @Bhagya Wickramasinghe 

 

Thank you for your prompt response.

 

Before I posted the question, I checked that possibility. Previously, it had not been checked.

 

I am still unable to enter text into the text area because it is grayed out.

 

Do you have any other suggestions?

Hi @ZTC ZTC JGOTA,

RMB on the window and launch “Properties”. In the “Read Only” tab is the respective custom field checked ?


If so, untick and re-load the configuration.
Hope this helps!

Best Regards,
Bhagya
