Allow edit on some fields in Quote Entry?

For Quoted Quotes, we want to be able to edit some of the fields. We have the Company Entry → Sales Module → “Prevent changes” to Quoted Quotes enabled; we don’t want to edit most fields if this is checked. However there are some fields we do want to allow editing on, eg %confidence.

I’ve tried enabling a field we want to edit with code, but stays read-only. Can someone point me in the right direction? My code:

	private void edvQuoteHed_EpiViewNotification(EpiDataView view, EpiNotifyArgs args)
		// ** Argument Properties and Uses **
		// view.dataView[args.Row]["FieldName"]
		// args.Row, args.Column, args.Sender, args.NotifyType
		// NotifyType.Initialize, NotifyType.AddRow, NotifyType.DeleteRow, NotifyType.InitLastView, NotifyType.InitAndResetTreeNodes

		EpiDataView edv = (EpiDataView)this.oTrans.EpiDataViews["QuoteHed"];
		EpiCheckBox chkQuoted = (EpiCheckBox)csm.GetNativeControlReference("ae1717bb-1bb2-47f1-ac15-e9e8511080fe");		
		EpiTextBox txtConfPct = (EpiTextBox)csm.GetNativeControlReference("aa66eb67-ac55-4027-87a4-93a28239541b");				
		bool isQuoted = false;

		if (edv.Row >= 0) {  //-1 for empty form
			isQuoted = Convert.ToBoolean(edv.dataView[edv.Row]["Quoted"]);
		if (isQuoted) {
			txtConfPct.ReadOnly = false;  //Enable field even if quoted
			txtConfPct.Enabled = true;  //Enable field even if quoted

		/*  default code from wizard, unused */
		if ((args.NotifyType == EpiTransaction.NotifyType.AddRow))
			if ((args.Row > -1))

I want this field to be editable:

I’m thinking the readonly is set by the database field, not the interface… not sure how to get to that.

FYI… We like to have the Company Entry → Sales Module → “Prevent changes” to Quoted Quotes. Prevents accidental changes to important things like parts, price, etc (most fields). However, this prevents ALL changes to everything. There are some fields we’d like to allow editing even if quoted, eg % confidence, close out tasks. So currently we’re having to uncheck Quoted, make those changes, then recheck. This then resets the quoted date and other dates, which we don’t want for these types of changes.

Ok so I’m barking up the wrong tree here. Those fields are not editable in a UBAQ if Quoted is checked, so it is locked outside of the user interface.

So my other thought is to Uncheck Prevent Changes on Company Entry. Then with a customization, set most all the fields to read only if Quoted is checked. Yuck (as there are so many fields). And/Or add a data directive BPM disallowing changes to any of those fields. Double yuck…!

Anyone else have a better idea?

Instead of ReadOnly try IsEpiReadOnly.
I’m not sure it’ll work, but it’s worth a shot.

Otherwise add a text box and bind it to callContextBpmData.XXX or something and create an event on change that calls a function to update the data directly without using the BO.
