SharePoint Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for SharePoint enthusiasts. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I try to change an SPField after SPList creation, but I'm not getting any results of that change. using this code:

    SPField oSPField = oSPList.Fields[new Guid("MyFieldGuid")];
    oSPField.ReadOnlyField = true;
    oSPField.ShowInEditForm = false;
    oSPField.ShowInNewForm = false;
    oSPField.Update();

and then...nothing happens. What's wrong?is there any change to change it without coding?

(the field CT is provided by an ContentType Hub.)

Since you are effectively changing the list schema, you may have to do an oSPList.Update() as well.
