I have a module with some fields are readonly.I use onchange function in  this module.The onchange is based on partner_id.
I selected partner_id and some fields are automatically loaded in my form.

phone,email,mobile fields are readonly in my module.When i save the module these fields are automatically disabled. 
I changed these fields readonly =False then it is working properly.The fields do not disabled.

What  are the phenomena behind this concept?

Hi  Aslam,

The word "Read-only" itself said this cannot be write simply. it is only Readable.

The values of read-only fields  will be display when if there is onchange() method written for thosefields, but values of those fields will not be saved because the field is only in Read mode (Read only).

If you want to write the data inside the Readonly field. you need to override the write() and create() method of ORM.

Hope this will clear your idea about read-only  fields.

Happy Odooing.



Thanks, Anil, I understand the concept behind readonly
