2559210 - How to Set Read-Only Property for List ( Table ) in Fiori / RUI


Read-only Property for fields in List (table)



Reproducing the Issue

  1. In Fiori, Goto any Work Center eg: Service
  2. Click on Tickets view.
  3. Click on Items facet.
  4. In this facet, you have created List (table). All columns are editable though this is set as read-only.

It works as expected in HTML5 & Silverlight.


Fiori does not honor a bound readOnly property on the list level, it will only consider the fallbackValue. If the need arises to have the whole table bound readOnly, it can be achieved by binding each column's readOnly property to this field


For below mentioned behaviours, apply solution in UI designer as follows.

Desired Behaviour Solution              
Set whole table to editable  Default behavior, set the readOnly property on ListDefinition to false
Set whole table to readOnly Set readOnly property on ListDefinition to true
Set whole table to be bound readOnly Go to row 6, since binding on ListDefinition node is not supported
Set a specific column to always be readOnly Set readOnly property on Column to true
Set all columns to always be readOnly Set readOnly property on all Columns to true, or set whole table readOnly
Set all columns to be bound readOnly Bind readOnly property on all Columns to the designated field
