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

I have a module that deploys a site page "Archives".

I want to set up this page to show the content of a list readonly, whatever permissions are granted to the connected user.

I have build this module :

<File Name="archives.aspx"
  <View BaseViewID="1"

The readonly attribute of the view node does not seems to have any effect.

Can I have a view to a list in full readonly mode?

Is the view in the list itself, on which this one is based, readonly? It could be that it inherits that setting, ignoring yours completely. –  Jasper Jul 20 '12 at 10:16
The view in the list is not readonly. I'll try to create a new view in the list with ro –  Steve B Jul 20 '12 at 10:28
even on the list itselft, the readonly attribute has no effect... –  Steve B Jul 20 '12 at 10:47
