How to make read-only text field on the basis of condition


Sajjad Ali Khan (31750) | asked Aug 19 '15, 4:09 a.m.
 Hi All, 

I have a attribute which has two radio button "Yes" & "No" and the text field. 
Validation which i need to implement is if user click on "Yes" then text field become mandatory and if user click "No" then text field become read-only.

My script works fine if user click YES then text field become mandatory but if user click NO then text field doesn't become read-only.

Please help me to implement read-only part in following script:

dojo.provide("org.example.workitems.providers.RFCandEPMOReference1");
dojo.provide("com.ibm.team.workitem.api.common.WorkItemAttributes");
(function() {
var WorkItemAttributes = com.ibm.team.workitem.api.common.WorkItemAttributes;
dojo.declare("org.example.workitems.providers.RFCandEPMOReference1" , null, {
matches: function(workItem, configuration){
var rfc = workItem.getValue("ThisRFCisProject.attribute");
console.log(rfc);
if(rfc == "enumeration.ThisRFCisProject.literal.l4"){
return true;
}
return false;
}
});
})();

You cannot do this in a validation script. You need to use a condition script to make it "dynamic read-only". See the "Dynamic read-only attributes with conditions" section in the below article for details.

  Donald Nong yes you are right i'm not creating validation for above scenario, that why i have create a condition, could you please just incorporate Read-only part in above provided script ???


i hope you ave understand the issue which i have written above and my script is also working fine but i just need to incorporate read-only part within the same script.

It appears that you did not completely understand what I meant. Let me put it this way, you will need two (not just one) scripts to achieve what you want - a "validation" script to make sure the attribute is mandatory, and a "condition" script to make sure the attribute is read-only. You cannot mix them together.

An example was already given in my original answer.

See the "Dynamic read-only attributes with conditions" section in the below article for details.
