Logical fields insist on being ReadOnly

Logical fields insist on being ReadOnly

Logical fields insist on being ReadOnly

(OP)
This is probably an air-headed question, but I'm stumped.

An app I'm doing has character and logical fields.  Used the wizard to build the form.  The character fields all edit fine.  

However, the logical fields, even though each one is readonly = .F., return "the control is readonly" when clicked and can't be edited.  These logical fields display with a check in them when true, and in the form designer, each logical has a background of yellow whereas the character fields have a background of white.  The form designer is no doubt trying to tell me something, but I don't know what.

Ideas?

RE: Logical fields insist on being ReadOnly

1. I hope you dont have a view which is not updating these fields. You can check that in the view designer.

2. Probably something is setting the readonly to .t.. May be the navigation bar has the setall key not tuned properly to effect CheckBox objects, which are turned read only = .t. or .f., if the record is being viewed only or edited.

Yet another cheching method for that is.. just temporarily remove the navigational bar and run the form directly with only fields for the cyrrent record. see that it is accepting a mouse click in check box and then close using close button of form.

Best of luck
