Turn field "not editable" if already filled

9 years 1 month ago #144849 by nicophp
I know that a field can be set for not being editable, after having been filled in the registration process.

As I don't want a long registration form, what I would like is to have the possibility to have some fields turned as "not editable" after they have been filled once regardless when they are filled for the first time.

Thanks for your suggestions

Can't be done without an integration. You'd need something fairly complex to alter and check ALL fields. Best I can suggest is reviewing CB Privacy plugin and its usage. You'd need to set $field->readonly to 1 if there is a value present.

Thanks for your prompt answer.

In fact, I don't have to check ALL fields, but in this case it's only 1 or 2 fields and each INDEPENDENTLY of the status of each other or of other fields.

(to better explain:
registered people have access to more content and once they upgrade their subscription, they have to fill the first and last name of a person that they will represent to access services. But afterward they cannot change the name, otherwise they can use one subscription to represent more then one person)

Right, but that's not how the API works. You can't issue a trigger for only 1 or 2 fields. Your plugin would affect all fields, but a simply IF statement can rule out other fields saving valuable resources. At any rate would still require a custom CB plugin that utilizes CB triggers in the same manner as CB Privacy.
