I have created a form and need to allow / disallow certain fields for certain roles.. ( ie. some can edit, some should just be able to view ).
Researched on EE and found this solution:
extract: Another option would be to have two fields, one editable and the other Computed for Display. You can hide/unhide the specific field based on the user. (rgade)
Is this the best way to achieve what I want? I question it as the post was from 1998.. I have seen previously a form formula used but this meant creating/maintaining several versions of the one form which sounds like hard ( excessive ) work.
Just wanting some clarification,
