What are Dynamic Attributes?
Dynamic Attributes are the successor to those pesky Reference IDs. They will allow users to create new custom settings at the Page and Element level and do it in a much more organized and scalable fashion. As an example, we developed a way to allow the Time or Date-Time element to be shown in either a 12 or 24-hour time format.
What does the Read-Only Attribute do?
The Read-Only Dynamic Attribute allows users to only view the data included in the Lookup table. This can be useful in scenarios where users only need to view previous records and not actually populate a new record with the data.
PLEASE NOTE: This Dynamic Element Attribute is available with iForm for iOS 8.35 and iForm for Android 8.10.
How do I make lookup data read-only?
To implement the Read-Only Dynamic Attribute, follow the instructions below.
STEP 1. Highlight the Lookup element that references the data table you wish to limit.
STEP 2. Under the Element Properties section, click the Dynamic Attributes drop-down.
STEP 3. Select Read Only from the drop-down choices.
STEP 4. Active the toggle to enable the Read Only Attribute.
STEP 5. Save your form.
STEP 6. Test the Dynamic Attribute on your device. The user should not be able to choose from any of the rows but can click the eye icon to get further details about the record.
