Error description

  • When making a field read only in 7.6.1 and using the iot18 skin
    the field does not change grey (denoting read only) like it
    does in previous versions of Maximo.
    Asset / Main Tab / 2 fields added / read only & not read only
    You cannot tell which is which due to the read only field does
    not shade grey like it does in 7.6.0.9 and previous Maximo
    versions. If you change the property (mxe.webclient.skin) to
    the old look - tivoli13 you will see that the field that is
    read only will now display with the shaded grey color.
    Steps to Reproduce:
    Login to Maximo 7.6.1
    Go to AD
    Select Asset
    Main Tab
    Add 2 multiline text boxes.
    Select a attribute
    Make one read only and the other not read only
    Save.
    log out.
    Log back in and go to Asset.
    You will see your fields and will not be able to tell the 2
    fields apart.
    Go to System Propertis
    find mxe.webclient.skin and change the global value from iot18
    to tivoli13.
    Save. Live refresh.
    Log out then back in.
    Go to Asset.
    The fields you added will now display with one being grey (read
    only) and the other will not.
