Subject RE: [IBO] Roles & Permissions
Author Norman Dunbar

officially, I have no idea, but unofficially :

can you trap the role being used (TIB_Connection.SQLRole ?) and if the one
in question is found, set all the queries and/or transactions ReadOnly
property to true ? The help for TIB_Transaction says that setting this to
true propogates to all data sets connected to the transaction.

I don't (yet) use roles, and I have not had anything like this problem
before, but it might just work. I've just tested setting a transaction to
read only and it does indeed stop my update bars from allowing me to
add/edit/delete - so it could be what you are after.
