We would like to provide proper user experience to prevent modification of records in certain scenarios .

Following the thread on Github, we are trying to allow certain users to change data based on a status and others not to (or all users not to change data after a certain status is achieved). So it is necessary to be able to change "Editable" of a page on runtime.

See https://github.com/Microsoft/AL/issues/1664 for more details.

Thank you for your feedback. We are considering adding it to our longer term roadmap.  

Your help is greatly appreciated,

I had a need for this in my last company and a need for it in my latest. As a work-around, I can manage to accomplish this by opening a copy of the page, with the Editable flag preset. The problem with this is that the original page must open, where logic can be applied, then closes. A bit of an annoyance but does work.

This was desperately needed since 2013.
