    Unanswered: many to many relative field - protection of inserted records

    Hi,

    Im a new user to this forum. I have been trying to get an answer to a
    support question at Brilliant, but looking at some posts at this forum
    it seems I'm out of luck. Now that I discovered this forum, perhaps someone
    here have an answer or suggestion to get around the problem:



    Is it possible to protect entries added into a many-to-many relative
    field from accidental deletion with the delete key?`

    Im aware that deleting the entry does not delete the original record,
    but records are added to the relative field for a reason, and should
    not be possible to delete without reason.
    By setting folder properties right, we are able to limit this on the
    records themselves, but the entries added to the relative field
    are not protected by those settings.

    We are running V8.4 atm, and are planning to upgrade existing licenses
    to V9 or 10 if its imminent, and also a server version to allow many users
    to access the same database. But we need a solution to our problem first.

    Thanks in advance for your answer.

    Hi,

    I do no have the "On ins/del key:" dropdown menu in "Scripts and behaviour".

    Was this feature added at V9? We are using V8.4.

    My software version is V9.42 Server, i don't know when its added.

    Try to set its editable status "No". For 'add record' or 'remove record' you can create extra buttons.
