Chris,
I installed the 2.05 beta on my test site and have discovered and tested most of the additions and fixes. However, the "view mode for records, so you can examine a record without editing it" feature eludes me. I don't have a clue where to look for a "view mode"!
Can you point me in the general direction? ... guess I'm just having a senior moment or something.
Thanks in advance ...

i think its useful when you have a multi-user installation.

maybe you want some users can view but dont let them modify.

for single users.. maybe does not have too much use (or i cant imagine it)

@Ron,

I should have mentioned this: you'll need to enable View Mode in the Section Editor for each section you're interested in allowing users to view. It's on the Advanced tab, uncheck to turn it on:

Disable View [x] Don't allow viewing of records through "view" menu

@flamerz,

Yes, you can set things up so that some users can only View certain sections. Right on the money. :)

I have heard of some single-user uses: Viewing can make it easier to printscreen and copy-and-paste. This may or may not be useful, depending on your work-flow.
All the best,
Chris

Hey Thanks guys ...

I don't know how I overlooked such an obvious change. It appears that it will be very useful in the future.

You'll need to use $RECORD instead of $record.

Thanks for the feedback everyone! We've just released 2.05 final!
All the best,
Chris
