Custom Task form - security


N

Netty

I have created a custom Task form and have it displayed by fields in a folder
under Tasks. Several fields are the yes/no icons which can easily be clicked
on. I want to know if there's a way to make those read-only on the task view
(so they can't be checked or unchecked) and then once the user opens the form
by double-clicking, then the field can be updated (checked or unchecked).
Anyone know if this is possible?

Or even easier I found is going into Other settings and not selecting the
"allow in-cell editing". Perfect and EASY.

Yes, that's true - but sometimes the easiest answer is nice to see too.
Everything I've seen you post is all complicated and with an attitude. If
you want to help people - start acting like it. Not everything has to be so
difficult.

My attitude is that, if a solution to an Outlook issue is available, I will
provide as much of that solution as I know and have time to give. The
solution I gave is the simplest one for the issue you presented. If you find
the solution too difficult (and I would not consider this a difficult
solution at all, not compared with some of the more intractable Outlook
development challenges), you're certainly entitled to redefine the issue so
that it might be amenable to an easier solution. We all make adjustments
like that all the time.

But we can't read your mind. If you want other solutions, you have to tell
us where you're willing to compromise. Note in particular that the subject
of your post included the word "security," which is something that gets
serious treatment in any computer programming discussion forum, including
this one. It carries an assumption that you want a solution that a user
cannot easily undo. A change in the view settings does not meet that
security test. I would have been less than "helpful" if I had failed to
point that out.
