Subject Re: [IBO] TIBOQuery.canModify allways true
Author Jason Wharton
I need to add in a check for it to look at the transaction read-only status.
I used to have it map to the native dataset it contains but it wasn't
completely accurate.
So, as a stop-gap for a fix I just replaced it with true.
What I need to do is re-implement it properly.
I'll add this to the list of issues to resolve.
