  • Hello Rashmi,

    An entity has 10 items, but the user should be allowed to edit only six of them.  Thus I need to lock the other four.

  • In screen design choose 'Label' as the control for the columns that you want to be readonly.

  • Thanks for your reply.

    I did that but the result is very strange.

    When I click Edit I get the dialog box where one can see all items, although those that I want read-only are "Not visible" and are indeed not visible in the grid. Only part of them are grayed and indeed read-only while the others, although declared Label, can be edited.

  • Hi Dan

    The edit dialog box generated by lightswitch by default, which you can't control. So to cross this hurdles you have two option:

    1. Remove AddAndEditNew button and instead of that place only AddNew button. This will allow you to add a new row only. Your Popup dialog box will be removed.

    2. If you want an add & edit modal window, then you have to create your own. Please follow below thread for step by step walk-through demonstrated by sheel shah and Yann Duran



    Hope this help you...
