Unable to display section in read-only mode in pyCaseInformation



To display some work related data in Case Information tab in read-only mode, the user has created a use case by including a section in 'pyCaseInformation' section, in the Presentation tab, setting the edit options as "Read-Only(Always)". But the section is still editable.

Error Messages

Not Applicable

Steps to Reproduce

1. In pyCaseInformation create a dynamic layout.
2. In this layout include a section with edit options as read-only(always) in Presentation tab.
3. Test the use case to observe that the section is still editable.



The root cause of this problem is software use/operation error.

Actionable elements like Button/Link/URL will always be editable in PRPC even when the container/Section is read-only.

Technically disabling is not the same as read-only. But there is local-change to disable action elements. Use pxIsEditable when rule to disable action elements when section is read-only.
