I have a model with more than 15 fields. In this model I have `state` field which indicates if the record might be able to be modified or readonly.

Is there a convienient way to set all fields to `readonly` based on the state in my model,

a) in the view or
b) in the model itself.

I dont want to override the models `write` method since the fields on the frontend suggest the user that he can change the values. I event do not want to add `attrs="{'readonly':[('state','not','draft')]}"` to all the fields in my view!

I tried to add the above `attrs=...` to the `group` tags in the view, but that does not seem to work (V8 RC1).

Any suggestions for a handy way to handle my requirement?

You can set the state attribute in python columns... That is the fesible option to lock your record based on a state value..
