Hi,

I am having a tabular form. I want to make 2 columns as read only. But when we

add a new row by clicking the Add Row button these columns will be editable for that particular row. After

adding the data and press the submit button that 2 columns will be changed to read only. Is there any way to

achieve this. Please advice.

Thanks,

Since this was posted in an Oracle zone can I assume Oracle Forms?

Have you tried Set_Item_Instance_Property?

See if the examples here help:

You can also set the update_allowed item-property to No

You can do it via JavaScript. In the region footer, add the following code (change "f02" to whatever array you are using):

<script type="text/javascript">
var f2=document.getElementsByName("f02");
for (var r = 0; r < f2.length; r++)
{
   if(f2[r].value != "")
   {
      f2[r].disabled=true;
   }
}

</script>

Open in new window
