Hi,

I have a requirement where I need to make a list Item read only after status field value= 'Complete'. I am thinking of writing an event handler to do this as setting item level permissions is not something that I am looking into.

Can anyone help how to achieve this?

Thanks

Creating an event handler is no problem if you skilled with .net and have Visual Studio - there are plenty of walkthroughs on the net that will tell you how to do this.  You could also easily achive this process using a workflow.  Sharepoint Designer will let you do it without code.

Your problem will be making an item "read only" - I would suggest you use "in place records management" and declare the item a record.  You can do this in code or in a workflow.

Declaring an item as a record works only with document libraries.  SharePoint designer workflow can set list item permissions but it cannot set an item read only.  I am still looking for code help with itemupdating event.

thanks
