Subject TIBOQuery.canModify allways true
Author William Hill

I have been experimenting with accessing databases
as read only and have come across the following problem
when the following properties have been set:-

TIB_Transaction.readOnly := true;
TIBOQuery.readOnly := true;
TIBOQuery.requestLive := false;

If I use a simple select statement such as select * from table,
open the TIBOQuery and test the canModify property it
returns true. If I then try and edit the current row I get the
following error "Cannot Edit current Row" which is correct.

Why is canModify returning true when it should be returning false ?
