Read/Write Access for Harnesses and Sections
This presentation is part of the Advanced UI Techniques Self-Study Course.
It is sometimes required within a process to display previously captured data in a read-only format in a confirmation step. The same section could, and probably should, be used for both the capture and the confirmation.
To achieve this…
- Define a privilege such as Read-Only that you never assign to a user role.
- Add this privilege as the “Update Privilege” attribute when you embed the section.
This ensures that whenever the parent section is displayed the embedded section is always shown as Read-Only.
PRPC 5.3 has some very interesting implementation of the Perform Harness, taking screen flows in particular to a new level. See Work-.TabbedScreenFlow and Work-.TreeNavigation for more information regarding advanced harness uses within screen flows.
