I have ModelAdmin with several CMS tabs to view data for my DataObject. It's read-only so CanEdit is set to false.

When I use DOM to view associated records I can't get the details popup to display in this mode, when I switch CanEdit to true the popup shows. When I leave CanEdit as false and use ComplexTableField instead I do get the read-only popup. But the DOM looks so much nicer!

I tried using $dom->setPermissions(array('view')); but it makes no difference.

How can I get the Popup to show in read-only mode?

Hmm.. I'm not able to replicate that. When I use:


I get a readonly form. This is a regular DOM? Not a FileDOM or anything? Shouldn't make a difference anyway, but I was testing with a regular DOM..

Hi UncleCheese!

I've created an example here: You should be able to add this to a SS install and check in the CMS.

If I comment out the 'public function canEdit() {return false;}' I get the popup, otherwise I don't. Would love to have a readonly popup.
