Lock a entire record with a script

It would appear from your last post that there are only two views of a record - the new record entry view and the existing record data view.

Rather than 'lock' the records by script, why not just use the script to direct the user who wishes to view a record to a layout where the fields are not editable.

ah!

ok if we're going for a create then lock thats simple!

2 layouts

1 for creation / editing

1 for viewing.

layouts -> duplicate

then select all fields and change 'behaviour', untick the 'enter in browse mode box'

this will prevent editing on this layout, but you can still go to your create / edit page to do, well... what it says on the tin, create & edit.

that what you were after?

if your still not clear say so + ill do screenshots.

Hi again!

We still with the same problem!

My database, is a db with 6 differents layouts, where we put information about samples. Some of that layouts have the same information, and they are to print like a document. So, when we receive a sample, one of us made a new record, where we put the information about that sample. After that, we need to introduce data in that record 3 or 4 times. It is the moment i need to lock the record to prevent acidental changes. Thats my big problem!

Thanks again in advance for any help, and sorry my confuse english!
