Conditional editability in dataview


I was working with Mendix 9 on the workflow feature and generated user input screens. These screens can be reopened after a task is completed and than the fields are still editable. There is an option to put the full dataview to not editable but it can not be based on a condition like it is possible on field level. My suggestion is to add conditional editability on the dataview comparable to field level.


See below on field level you have the options Default / Never / Conditionally:


On dataview level you only have Editable Yes / no:


My suggestion is to expand on dataview level with a Conditional option.

Not many votes on this idea, so I don’t think mendix will put it on the roadmap


This would be a big advantage. I think it is the same as this idea.

It would make it so much easier to toggl between edit and view mode on the same page.

The problem is recognised by the community, because there are several questions about it. Like this one, and this one.
Hopefully it will be seen by the Mendix product development team...
