How to disable Edit option on image widget?

I want to display the image as readonly on a custom form.

The field is:

<field name="photo" widget='image' options='{"size": [150, 140]}' readonly="1"  />

even after I keep the field as readonly="1" the Edit option appears.

How do I disable the Edit option on image widget?

Hi Hardik, Can you tell me, is this image field a related field like *"fields.related"*, if not then atleast one time you will be updating the image into that field so making it readonly is not useful and although due to image widget it will not become readonly. But If this is a related field than you can go for creating a *"field.function"* for type as *"binary"*, instead of "related" field, which will automatically become a un-editable field. Regards

yes it is bug currenty shows and allows you to click on edit image if it is readonly. it also allows you to select select image but when you will click on save it will not save changes for image as you made it readonly. so you can post issue for that and till solution comes you can go ahed with this readonly=true code;)
